Holter is also a common check item, but because many people have misunderstandings about Holter , Leading to misunderstandings, so understand these misunderstandings.

What are the misunderstandings of Holter?

First, take more rest and less activity during the inspection.

Perhaps many people when inquiring about various electrocardiogram knowledge, they will mention that they should take more rest when doing the electrocardiogram, and don't let the heartbeat affect the examination result. But in fact, this kind of electrocardiogram is only limited to the general electrocardiogram.

Thirdly, it is normal after the examination, indicating that there is no problem with the heart .

After a 24-hour Holter examination, there is no indication of any abnormality, indicating that there is no problem with the heart. This is what many people think subconsciously. But in fact, if most people don't have heart discomfort while wearing Holter, the result is normal. Therefore, if they always feel heart discomfort and prompt them to be normal after the examination, they should continue the Holter examination for a period of time to find abnormalities.
