A systematic approach to Holter monitor interpretation

Am Fam Physician. 1992 Apr;45(4):1641-8.


A systematic approach to the interpretation of ambulatory electrocardiographic recordings facilitates analysis and improves accuracy. The method suggested includes a mnemonic and a standardized interpretation form. The mnemonic facilitates recall of key technical and patient-specific parameters involved in the preparation and evaluation of Holter monitor and other ambulatory electrocardiographic recordings. The standardized interpretation form consolidates essential findings from the study into a practical, easy-to-assimilate format.
