Long-term ECG monitoring has become nowadays an indispensable technology for prevention, management and treatment of many cardiac issues. Today long-term ECG monitoring is achievable through loop recorders and cardiac devices like pacemaker, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators and cardiac resynchronization therapy device-defibrillators, all of which associated with remote monitoring. Targeted long-term ECG monitoring patients who have recurrent non-documented episodes of palpitations, unexplained episodes of syncope, cryptogenic stroke or patients with a cardiomyopathy needing a risk stratification, may benefit from long-term ECG monitoring.


KEY WORDS: Electrocardiography - Physiologic monitoring - Artificial pacemaker - Implantable defibrillators - Cardiac resynchronization therapy devices
