Cardiac Loop (Event) Recording
A cardiac loop recorder is a device which records a continuous loop of cardiac rhythm. If a patient experiences symptoms, the patient pushes an indicator button to save recent ECG tracings. The tracings can then be transmitted by telephone for analysis. Loop recorders are generally worn for 1 or 2 weeks and are used to diagnose symptoms such as dizziness, palpitation or fainting.
