In brief: Depends

This is not an uncommon test ordered.
It is used to see if any cardiac arrhythmia is associated with symptoms you are having.

In brief: Holter monitor

Arrhythmias that occur less frequently are better detected with a 30 day ambulatory event monitor. There are different types of longer duration monitors that can be used depending on the arrhythmia in question.
