Loop Event Monitoring

Loop Event Monitoring

Loop Event monitoring is similar to Holter monitoring. A Loop Event monitor is worn by the patient for a 14 day period. Patients are hooked up to the monitor with 2 leads connecting electrodes to locations on the chest. During the monitoring period, patients press the ‘Event’ button when a symptom is felt. The Loop Event then captures a ‘before and after’ recording of the patient's ECG. When the monitor is returned, all captured recordings are analyzed to create a 14 day trend of ECGs according to patient symptom.

 

As with Holter recording, the Loop Event monitor is a non-invasive tool in assessing conduction disturbances within the heart's conduction system. Patients who experience symptoms less frequently are often put on Loop Event monitors increasing the chance of capturing the arrhythmia.
