The Heart Center of North Texas provides follow-up services for several cardiac monitoring devices. We provide services for the following devices:
- Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICDs)
- Loop Monitor
- Holter Monitor
- Event Monitor
Device checks for pacemakers and defibrillators are non-invasively performed in the office by trained personnel.
A loop monitor is an implantable device that records and reports heart rhythms. Loop monitors upload device information daily from the patient's home if the provided equipment is set-up and functional.
A Holter Monitor is an external battery-operated portable device that records your heart's activity continuously for a designated amount of time.
An Event Monitor is an external battery-operated device that records your heart's activity when the patient activates the system to record the rhythm during the event.
