An Event Recorder is a recording device used to record the heart rhythm.
It is similar to an EKG/ECG. You can wear the recorder over a period of
14 days to 30 days, while you go about your usual daily activities. When
you feel symptoms, you press a record button and the event monitor records
and stores up to five events of your heart's electrical activity.
The Event Recorder is about the size of a pager. You can clip it to a
belt, your pants, or place it in your pocket. Two electrodes (sticky patches)
are worn on your chest. A wire attaches the electrodes to the Event Recorder.
The Event Recorder is worn day and night, and continuously scans your
heart's electrical activity.
