Pacemaker: A holter monitor is a device you wear like an ECG that then records your heart beat for 24 hours or longer. If you had a pacemaker implanted previously, the holter monitor would then be able to determine how many of the heart beats originated from your own heart and how many were caused by the pacemaker functioning.

Extra beats: Extra beats on a holtet are quite common as I am sure your doctor told you your ok unless there are sustained periods of rapid heart beats or pauses.
