Long-term ECGs are a diagnostic method that constantly records an electrocardiogram during a whole day and night.
A long-term ECG is necessary:
- for detecting cardiac arrhythmias
- if you suffer from heart race or nausea
- after collapsing / unconsciousness
- for monitoring heart rhythm stabilising therapies
- if you suffer from thoracic pain and shortness of breath
- for monitoring heart diseases
Measurement is accomplished via six electrodes placed on your chest area. The recorder is very small and light which enables patients to carry out their normal daily routine.
The long-term ECG ist used for early detection and early treatment.
