R-r interval: An ECG has various titled waves. The R wave is part of ventricular depolarization. The r to r interval is the time between ventricular depolarizations. This is usually transposable to heart rate. The holter is a 24 hour ECG recording. An r-r interval of 1second equates to a heart rate of 60 beats per minute.

A 45-year-old member asked:

What type of doctor can order a holter monitor?

Any doctor: Primary care doctors often order a holter monitor (which records heart rhythm for 24 - 48 hours) to evaluate palpitations and they are interpreted most often by internists and cardiologists. It is very helpful for the wearer to mark the moment they are experiencing symptoms by depressing a button on the device. This allows the physician to correlate the rhythm at the moment of the symptoms.

Holter monitor: It depends on the patient's symptoms and the frequency that they occur. Holter monitors are useful for picking up arrhythmias that occur on a frequent, usually daily basis since the monitor is in place for 24-48 hours. Arrhythmias that occur less frequently are better detected with a 30 day ambulatory event monitor.
