get your Holter monitor test done. This Holter monitors record your heart rhythm continuously for 24 to 48 hours.and use Event monitors which are similar to Holter monitors. You wear one while you do your normal daily activities. Most event monitors have wires that connect the device to sensors. The sensors are stuck to your chest using sticky patches.Unlike Holter monitors, event monitors don't continuously record your heart's electrical activity. They only record when symptoms occur. For many event monitors, you need to start the monitor when you feel symptoms. Some event monitors start automatically if they detect abnormal heart rhythms.
