A Holter system, also known as an ambulatory electrocardiograph, is a tool used by physicians to acquire ECG rhythm abnormalities that do not occur only in office, intended for monitoring and diagnosing coronary problems in patients with shortness of breath, chest pain, arrhythmias, palpitations, cardiac medication, pacemakers, and family and/or personal history of heart disease, among other conditions. Welch Allyn's innovative PCH-200 Expert Holter software kit helps streamline workflow, enhancing every practice's efficiency and EHR compatibility with detailed evaluations and fast, accurate data. The kit includes Expert software, the HR-300 Holter recorder, a 7-lead patient cable, USB Bluetooth adapter, and USB SD card reader, with an optional laptop and printer for a complete system.
HR-300 Holter Recorder
The HR-300 recorder is is a compact, easy-to-wear device that, when used with the software, provides comprehensive analysis of ECG data at the end of the monitoring period. It features 2- or 3-channel recording, 24-48 hours of recording time, pacer detection, and real-time wireless ECG data transfer via Bluetooth technology for verification of proper electrode placement and quality. Two patient-activated event buttons enable the patient to record events and times that he or she believes are significant. It provides feedback on a clear LED display window.
The HR-300 improves on the HR-100 Holter recorder with additional powerful features designed to accommodate regular, demanding usage. It offers remote initialization for added convenience, a display screen for real-time ECG previewing and test programming, and three programmable sampling rates: 200, 500, and 1,000 sps. It also boasts an elastomer keypad with navigational and soft menu keys for easier, more straightforward use and programming.
