Loop Recorder Implantation
A loop recorder records your heart rate and rhythm continuously over a prolonged period of time (e.g. 6 months) and is implanted under the chest skin. It is typically used to look for causes of fainting, palpitations, very fast or slow heartbeats, and hidden rhythms that can cause strokes. During a loop recorder implantation a small device is placed underneath your skin overlying the heart. The machine works as an electrocardiogram (ECG), continuously picking up electrical signals from the heart.
