Ambulatory Monitor

The Ambulatory Monitor requires you to wear a heart monitor to record your heart beat for a specified amount of time.
Please inform a member of staff if you have a Pacemaker or skin allergies.

What to Expect

  • You will be asked to remove your clothing from the waist up, gowns are available on request
  • The monitor will take approximately 15 minutes to fit
  • You will be required to return after the specified time to have your monitor removed
  • Please continue with your regular daily activities whilst wearing the monitor
  • If you are arriving at the hospital by ambulance, please bring a relative/carer. If this is not possible, please advise the department
  • If you require a chaperone please inform the department
  • Please ensure you have a copy of your current medication to hand
  • A Clinical Physiologist or assistant will be performing the Test

The Results

The recording is analysed and the results are sent to the person who referred you. If you were referred by your GP you will receive your results from the GP. If you were referred by a Consultant you will usually get your results from them - either in a clinic appointment or via letter (a copy will go to you and your GP).
