Ambulatory ECG monitoring (Holter monitor) is used to detect major arrhythmias and myocardial ischemia occurring during normal activities. Ambulatory ECG monitoring adds very little prognostic value in patients with chronic stable angina, however, does play a role in the detection of major arrhythmias in patients with chronic stable angina and suspected vasospastic angina.

Ambulatory ST Segment Monitoring


  • Many patients with CAD experience episodes of asymptomatic myocardial ischemia detectable by ST segment monitoring whether or not they have angina pectoris. Patients with symptomatic angina also often have multiple additional episodes of asymptomatic ischemia, and the frequency and severity of these episodes correlate with prognosis.
  • In patients who cannot exercise, ambulatory ST segment monitoring is an alternative.
