Requested holter monitor. What is the meaning of DR200/HE?

Hi: My cardiologist requested a two week holter monitor for me, which I am wearing since Monday. It stopped working on Thurs night and on Friday the tech at hospital re set it, put new battery in, and hooked me up again. All was well till now. I get a message on screen that reads DR200/HE. Do you know what that means? Obviously I will return to hospital tomorrow & get machine replaced. All leads are connected. Thank you

HOLTER MONITOR is a device which is used to track arrhythmia meaning irregular beats which are hard to track as being irregular in nature and its not a constant phenomenon hence the constant 24hr monitor is needed to track it ( like antivirus software monitor your online activity and protects your computer from virus attack).


THE "DR200/HE" Is the model number of the Holter monitor instrument and is made by
NorthEast Monitoring, Inc.

Mostly what you have seen on the screen is the model number of that machine type on the screen of the monitor LCD.

If in need of more information here is the link you can have the information about specification of the device
