ICU & Coronary Care

24 hour 'Holter' E.C.G.
Used for identifying the cause of some types of palpitation, the 'Holter' recording is made on a small walkman-like tape over a 24 hour period while you go about your normal day activities. Recording wires attached to your chest are connected to the recorder, which you wear on a belt or a shoulder strap. The recording is then analysed by computer and your docter will have a clear picture of any changes which have occured during that 24 hour period.

The Hospital has, through well-established contacts within the greater medical community, the facility for referral to other hospitals providing services not available on site, such as coronary artery by-pass surgery.
