The Convenience of Cardiac Event Monitors

Most health professionals may agree that the heart is one of the most important organs in the body. The heart is the source of life, yet there are many illnesses and diseases that can affect our heart. Thanks to modern science, cardiac patients have technology available to them that can help detect ailments for quicker diagnoses and faster treatment.

One of the most convenient examples of modern technology that can help cardiac patients is the wireless cardiac event monitor. This device allows cardiac patients the freedom to continue living a normal life outside of the hospital while still receiving supervision from their doctors and nurses. Arrhythmia monitoring is a convenient option for patients in determining the severity of a potential heart condition.

Cardiac event monitors are usually designed to detect events or heart rhythms that might seem abnormal or out of place. A quality cardiac monitor can help a cardiologist identify and track events like Atrial Fibrillation, Bradycardia and Tachycardia, which are different types of arrhythmias that can be fairly harmless as an isolated event, but could be more concerning when they occur more frequently or are combined.

Heart monitoring may be necessary if you regularly experience symptoms, but keep in mind that you may not experience symptoms even with an arrhythmia present. If symptoms occur, they may include:

●      Palpitations or the feeling of your heart skipping beats

●      Lightheadedness

●      Dizziness

●      Shortness of breath

●      Chest pain

●      Sudden weakness
