My cardiologist wants me to wear 24 hr. Holter monitor. Sudden rapid heart beats happen 4 to 5 times a month. How will the doctor catch this in 24hrs?

In brief: That is the goal!

The holter monitor will record all your heart beats over 24 hours and then the doctor can review all that your heart has done over 24 hours.
This is the best way to capture irregular heart beats!
