CARDIAC MONITORING CAN
UNLOCK THE ANSWER
If you have atrial fibrillation (AFib), or your doctor suspects that you do, cardiac monitoring may be necessary to determine how often and how long it occurs.
Sometimes episodes of AFib are infrequent and require longer-term monitoring and in some cases, your doctor may also want to monitor how effective different treatments are at keeping your AFib under control. Types of cardiac monitoring vary in terms of how long they can be used and how information is captured:
- Holter Monitors
- Event Recorders
- Mobile Cardiac Telemetry Systems
- Insertable Cardiac Monitoring Systems
