The cardiac monitor is a device that shows the electrical and pressure waveforms of the cardiovascular system for measurement and treatment. Parameters specific to respiratory function can also be measured. Because electrical connections are made between the cardiac monitor and the patient, it is kept at the patient's bedside.

My nephew is 32 yrs olds, his dad died from heart failure. He passed out, and was taken to the hospital. They have kept him hospitalized for the pass 3 days. After several test EKG included, it is determined his heart rate is 85 bpm. They are going to place a under the skin heart monitor, which they said he has to wear for three years. What type of monitor is this and why does he need to wear so long

I often have an irregular heartbeat during the course of the day (5 to 6 times). I can feel gas moving around in my system almost everytime this occurs. I often have rapid heartbeats which are relieved by passing . I was hospitalized before because I thought tI was having a heart attack but after thorough testing (ekg, ultrasound, stress test, wearing a heart monitor at home) they found nothing. What could be a possible avenue that I can pursue to finally get rid of this or at least be able to treat it.
