Project information

Holter Monitor

The Holter is a recording device that records the electrical activity of your heart for 24 to 48 hours, or for up to 7 days if a digital one is used. A Holter monitor is usually used if an ECG or Echocardiograph of the heart does not give enough information about the heart’s condition.

  • Need

    Need

    Reduce the incidence of young sudden cardiac death

    Solution

    Screening young people for any potentially life-threatening cardiac conditions they may have.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    Reduce the incidence of young sudden cardiac death.


    Activities

    » Screen young people, however if an ECG and Echocardiograph doesn't give enough information, a holter monitor will then be used.

    What success will look like

    By identifying the number of young people screened and the number referred on for further testing who may need a holter monitor.


  • Impact

    Impact

    With the increase in number of young people we screen, this will mean that more people will be identified as having a cardiac condition, which will mean they will either be treated for their condition or given advice on how best to manage their condition, reducing the risk of them having a cardiac arrest and the incidence of young sudden cardiac death.
