Event Recorder

This is a portable EKG used to record the heart rhythm during times of symptoms. Most of these recorders have a small computer device that permits "memory" recording of the EKG before the device is activated. The EKG is saved, and at a convenient time, you send the EKG by telephone to the hospital. The recording is then printed on EKG paper and the cardiologist reviews it. A cardiologist or nurse will call you with the results in one to two days.
