Halter monitor : An ekg only captures a few heartbeats. If you are having heart palpitations you should tell your primary care doctor. S/he can arrange for you to have a test called a 24 hour halter monitor. You wear a device for an entire day and it captures every heartbeat and can help to prove or disprove the presence if an irregular heartbeat, aka an arrhythmia.
