An ECG patch recorder is a small device that records your heart rhythm continuously for up to a week. Patches can be stuck on the chest, with or without additional leads, and transform the way that we can monitor heart patients. Patches are often used in patients with symptoms such as palpitation, dizziness and collapse.
The device records your heart rhythm continuously and without the need for you to do anything. If you do have any symptoms then you can press a button on the device which will store your heart rhythm for later review.
About 15 minutes to set up.
Once you have returned your ECG patch recorder, it will be analysed and a report generated, usually within seven days.
