  • Practical introduction to ECG Holter analysis
  • Single-authored

Twenty-four hour ECG recordings continue to be the backbone of electrocardiographic diagnosis. The devices are worn by patients on an outpatient basis for days or weeks and can also be implanted subcutaneously. ECG Holter recordings not only detect rhythmic and subjective events but can also be programmed individually for activation and specific tracing analysis. The purpose of this volume is to provide an overview of the techniques, interpretation, advantages and disadvantages of ECG Holter monitoring.

Dr. Richard Adamec graduated as Medical Doctor (MD) at the Charles University in Prague in 1957.  Between 1975 and 1979, he was the senior registrar at the Cardiology Centre University Hospital of Geneva.  Between 1979 and 1998, he served as Staff Cardiologist at the University Policlinic and at the Cardiology Centre of the University Hospital of Geneva.  From 1988 he was a privat-docent.  Between 1975 and 1998, Dr. Adamec was responsible for the interpretation of all Holter ECG recordings performed at the Cardiology Centre and Medical Policlinic of the University of Geneva.
