With the purchase of two 7 day Holter monitors, the Canberra Heart Clinic can now do Holter monitoring from 1 day up to 7 days. Since the clinic has 15 Holter monitors, appointments can generally be booked with no waiting time. It should also be remembered that Holter monitors at the Canberra Heart Clinic are read by its own local cardiologists unlike those provided in pathology which may be read by cardiologists located outside of Canberra. Cardiologists reporting for pathology providers may not have access to the referral letter or the patient’s notes. Holter monitors provided by pathology providers also do not in general have an event button for the patient to press and do not have a clock on them which makes correlating patient symptoms with rhythm traces next to impossible. We therefore pride ourselves on the quality of our Holter monitor reports.
