A cardiomemo is a portable event recorder. This non-invasive and painless test enables your doctor to record your heartbeat and monitor cases of palpitations, shortness of breath, dizziness or loss of consciousness.
Devices are given to you for about ten days. Your doctor will instruct you to place the cardiomemo on your chest each time you experience any of the symptoms for which the test was prescribed. It is important to carry on with your normal routine while wearing the monitor.
After each recording, you will need to disinfect the cardiomemo with the alcohol swabs provided to you with the device.
To ensure that you don’t miss any recordings, make sure to have the device with you at all times when leaving home.
Our cardiologists are experts in performing the most state-of-the-art procedures and use the latest technology to ensure that you get the most accurate diagnosis possible.
