Booking & Clinic Details

Like Holter monitors, a CardioSTAT test allows your doctor to record your heart rate and rhythm over a long period of time. A CardioSTAT, however, is lighter, more compact, designed for single-use, and is very comfortable. CardioSTAT recorders also allow recording over a longer period (up to 14 days) enabling a more accurate and complete diagnosis.

The device is essentially a thin, flexible strip that is placed on your chest. It is invisible under clothing and comfortable, even at night. Unlike conventional heart monitors, you can keep a CardioSTAT on in the shower or during physical activity.

Your doctor may recommend a CardioSTAT test to monitor any of the following symptoms associated with a rhythm disorder:

  • Palpitations
  • Dizziness
  • Fainting spells
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain or discomfort.

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.

What happens during your appointment?

On the day of your appointment, the technician will explain the procedure and install the device on your chest. They will also provide with you a prepaid envelope in which to return the device for analysis.

Results will be reviewed upon receipt of the CardioSTAT by a cardiologist and promptly forwarded to your referring physician.
