BP Holter and ECG

Blood Pressure (BP) Holter
This device records the changes in blood pressure over a 24-hour period. Holter monitoring of blood pressure evaluates the patient’s blood pressure levels for 24
hours, in the normal environment and activities of the patient outside the doctor’s office.

The investigation is necessary in case of borderline blood pressure readings to rule out or confirm the diagnosis of hypertension. It is also a useful tool to diagnose resistant hypertension and to evaluate treatment outcomes of this condition.

Electrocardiogram (ECG)
An electrocardiogram is a simple test that can be used to check your heart’s
rhythm and electrical activity. Sensors attached to the skin are used to detect the
electrical signals produced by your heart each time it beats.

These signals are
recorded by a machine and are looked at by a doctor to see if they’re unusual.
