Motor hiccup "- we are annoyed when the heart suddenly begins to play pranks. Meanwhile, remember: the last time I did a cardiogram? "Do not hurt" – this is not an argument A number of severe pathologies such as myocardial infarction or organic lesions of heart muscle in diabetes, often arise and develop virtually painless. Although the time a person may feel completely healthy, the numbers speak for themselves: annually in developed countries, one of thousands of people die suddenly, and almost 90% of these deaths are "sincere" reasons. Besides, every tenth of the deceased during his lifetime there was no pain, no arrhythmias or dyspnea, or ecg changes – Generally no specific clinical symptoms. Until recently almost the only widely available way to detect hidden heart disease had electrocardiography. However, the ecg recording lasts just a few on the radio.
Holter method quickly received worldwide fame and widespread. Of course, over the past decade, it dramatically improved technically, but the essence remains the same – continuous monitoring of the heart within 24 hours. In fact, many heart disease manifested by a sudden sharp physical or emotional stress. For example, some types of dangerous arrhythmias occur at night during sleep, whereas day in the doctor's office, they can not be detected. The study conducted by Holter ambulatory and does not affect the habitual way of life. On the chest with a special gel is fixed three disposable electrodes on the belt – day the instrument is removed and a detailed analysis of daily ecg recordings. Especially valuable for the physician has the information obtained by comparing the ecg recording with patient diary data. Holter ecg performed only in medical institutions of high level. Giant group understood the implications. As noted by the chief physician outpatient center Max-Well (Borispol), PhD, ta Grechanaja, this procedure is absolutely safe and does not cause the patient special inconveniences, but has a greater diagnostic value. It allows you to assess heart function in everyday terms: a reaction to the physical and emotional stress, cardiac output during sleep, his rhythm during the days, myocardial perfusion, the causes of syncope.
