Bradycardia. You can monitor bradycardia in multiple ways: 1. You can feel your pulse for ten seconds (in your wrist) and multiply by six to get heart rate in beats per minute (less than sixty beats per minute defined as bradycardia) 2. Ekg patches can be placed on y chest (for up to one month) that records your heart rate 3. Small device can be implanted under skin upto two years to record bradycardia.
Holter monitor. The best way to monitor bradycardia (and many tachycardias as well) is to wear a holter monitor. A holter monitor is a type of portable device for continuously monitoring the electrical activity of the heart for 24 hours to as much as two weeks. It can be useful for diagnosing the type of bradycardia and the frequency of the rhythm. For more transient symptoms, a cardiac event monitor may be worn.
