A mobile patch-style device that provides up to 14 days of uninterrupted comprehensive heart monitoring is available now at Saltzer Health.

The cardiac monitor is useful in assessing patients who are experiencing a fast heart rate, fluttering, palpitations, light headedness or other symptoms, said Tom Hunt, a registered diagnostic cardiac sonographer and director of cardiology at Saltzer Health.

“The small cardiac monitor device is discreetly worn on a patient’s chest and captures data about the heart rate and rhythm for a 14-day period. It collects data that allows our caregivers to more appropriately diagnose patients with cardiac arrhythmias and often aides in our assessments regarding the appropriate next steps in a patients cardiac care plan,” he said.

The device is water-resistant and minimally invasive.
