An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a routine test that is used to look at the electrical activity of the heart. The electrical activity is transcribed into a graph form called the EKG. Your doctor can use an electrocardiogram to look for patterns among these heartbeats and rhythms to diagnose various heart conditions.

Holter Monitoring, also known as ambulatory electrocardiogram (ECG), is a continuous, 24-hour recording of the heart’s electrical activity that detects abnormal heart rhythms, occurring during normal activities of daily living.

Ambulatory Blood Pressure (BP) monitoring is an automatic, lightweight and quiet arm cuff that provides multiple blood pressure readings over an extended length of time, usually 24 hours.
