TRAVELing with your cardiac monitor
Since abnormal heart rhythms may happen without notice, we have designed our technologies to allow you to have your heart monitored, while you go about your daily activities. This may include travel if your doctor approves your travel. It is important to follow your doctor's instructions throughout your monitoring period.
Wearing the monitor will help your doctor diagnose potential heart rhythm problems when you are outside a clinic or hospital. By continuously tracking your heart rhythms, doctors are more likely to discover whether an arrhythmia is causing your symptoms, and then can use the monitors to determine the best treatment for your condition.
