The typical recording time is 24 h or 48 h. After the recording process is terminated, the patient shall come to the medical treatment institute to have the ECG data recorded by the Holter recorder transmitted to a PC, which are then analyzed, displayed and compiled by the analysis software, and finally an analysis report is generated.

Evaluation of symptoms suggesting arrhythmia or myocardial ischemia.
Evaluation of ECG documenting therapeutic interventions in individual patients or groups of patients.
Evaluation of patients for ST segment changes
Evaluation of a patient’s response after resuming occupational or recreational activities.
Clinical and epidemiological research studies.
Evaluation of patients with pacemakers.
Reporting of time and frequency domain heart rate variability.
Reporting of QT Interval.
