In brief: Talk to your Doctor

Holter Monitor used to look for abnormal heartbeats or patterns of heartbeats.
They are often missed on basic ecg(EKG). The causes and types of findings are numerous. Care must be individualized to you!! Ask your Doctor. Everyone skips a few to several hundred heartbeats in 24 hours, but the pattern is very important. Go over your results with the person who ordered your test. Good Luck!

Keeping an accurate diary of your activities (especially if you feel palpitations or irregular rhythm) can aid the doc immensely
