Recorders, Electronic Storage, Data, Electrocardiography, Loop-Recording
Definition : Electronic storage recorders designed to store information only for a pre-established, relatively short period of time (typically less than one hour), and then record again on the same memory erasing the previous information. (i.e., loop recording). These recorders typically consist of an electronic unit including processing circuits and a solid state memory and appropriate electrodes to capture the bioelectric signals from the heart. Electrocardiographic loop-recorders may be used externally or be implanted under the skin; external units can usually provide signal outputs appropriate to send to the physician's office using standard telephone lines. The recorders are mainly used in patients who have syncope or presyncope events and/or cardiac arrhythmia.
