Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
At UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, we believe parents and guardians can contribute to the success of this test, and we invite you to participate. Please read the following information to learn about the test and how you can help.
A Holter monitor is a small machine that makes a continuous recording of your child’s electrocardiogram (EKG) for 24 hours.
You and your child will come to the hospital to have the Holter monitor put on.
The most important thing parents can do is to help make sure the test gathers all the information needed. You can do that by:
When you return the Holter monitor, you do not need to bring your child with you or wait for the results to be read.
If your child has any special needs or health issues you feel the doctor needs to know about, please call the Heart Institute at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh before the test and ask to speak with a nurse. It is important to notify us in advance about any special needs your child might have.
