Continuous Ambulatory Electrocardiographic (ECG) monitoring is used to help diagnose intermittent and infrequent cardiac arrhythmias over a long period of time.
It can be used for 24 hours, 48 hours or up to 1 week. It records your heart rhythm over longer periods of time to greatly increase the odds of capturing and recording this intermittent, but significant, arrhythmia.
