Monitoring your heart rhythm when you go home.

Although the device is monitoring your heart rhythm continuously, it can be manually activated to record a short segment of your heart rhythm when you are experiencing symptoms. We can then use this recording to determine if your symptoms are due to an abnormal heart rhythm. Our pacemaker technicians will explain to you how to manually activate your implantable loop recorder.

If you experience one of your episodes when you are back at home, please call our department and we arrange for the device to be checked.
