Cardiac monitors are worn to measure your heart’s activity throughout a normal day. Cardiac rhythm disturbances, sometimes known as heart rhythm disturbances or arrhythmias are abnormal or irregular heartbeats. These disturbances disrupt your heart’s electrical signals and can cause your heart to beat too fast, too slowly, or in an abnormal way. The risk for these disturbances increases with age. Certain specific and severe types could lead to sudden cardiac death. Symptoms of cardiac rhythm disturbances can vary, depending on the type and severity. If you have an arrhythmia, you may feel a fluttering sensation in your chest, such as a palpitation. You also may feel “extra” heartbeats as if your heart is beating more often than it should.
If you have tachycardia, you may feel like your heart is racing or beating very fast. Bradycardia and bradyarrhythmias cause your heart to beat more slowly that could make you feel sluggish or as if your heart is beating very slowly. You also may feel like your heart is “skipping” beats or not beating as often as it should.
Other symptoms include:
- Fatigue Dizziness
- Shortness of breath Chest pain
Your doctor usually can diagnose a cardiac rhythm disturbance based on your symptoms, medical history, risk factors, a physical exam, and results from tests and procedures.
During a physical examination, your doctor will check your heart rate and rhythm, together with your pulse. If your doctor thinks you may have a cardiac rhythm disturbance, he or she will likely order an electrocardiogram (EKG) for confirmation.
Your doctor may ask you to wear an “event” (or “Holter”) monitor. This is a portable device in the size of a smart phone or smaller and can be worn under clothing, similar to an exercise heart rate monitor. This device will convey information back to your doctor and identify any abnormal rhythms that might happen intermittently, but not all of the time. The monitoring period varies from 24 hrs to 7 days to get the required information.
During the testing period, you can engage in all your daily routine but limiting intensive exercise that may cause sweating as it could lead to noise in the signal due to muscle straining. There is no adverse effects during the testing. Biocalculus is sized and shaped to provide you more comfort without making you cautious that you are wearing a medical device.
