A Holter test, also known as an ambulatory electrocardiograph, is a test used by physicians to acquire ECG rhythm abnormalities that do not occur only in office. Burdick Vision Holter software kit by Cardiac Science is a complete Holter system cleverly designed for monitoring and diagnosing coronary problems in patients with shortness of breath, chest pain, arrhythmias, palpitations, cardiac medication, pacemakers, and history of heart disease, among other conditions. Its wide range of options ensures that every practitioner will find a configuration to suit his or her individual needs, preferences, and budget.
The lightweight, compact, portable recorder is just half the size of older models and boasts a streamlined, five-button design with a clear LCD display. It provides 5- or 7-lead 3-channel ECG monitoring and displays real-time readings and visual signal verification for lead and signal quality checking, minimizing the need for repeat tests. The recorder features integrated pacemaker detection.

After the administration of the test, the physician uses the included USB cable to connect the recorder to the in-office PC (see system requirements below), where data is organized and analyzed by the powerful yet simple software. The Vision Holter software is fully customizable, with innovative functions standard with every option. The most basic choice is, in fact, not basic at all; it features accurate, easy-to-interpret data reporting, customizable full-disclosure report formats, color-coded abnormalities, and complete, comprehensive ST reporting for the full duration of the test (up to 48 hours). Tests may be saved to the PC, exported to the facility EHR system, printed, and shared, minimizing paper waste and storage and maximizing workflow and efficiency.
Reports may be individually or globally reviewed and edited, and arrhythmias are isolated in 7-second strips with beat annotations, heart rate, classification, and time of occurence for closer examination. Users may select from various ECG morphologies such as normal, artifact, paced, and ventricular. For a complete understanding of the patient's cardiac condition and accurate diagnosis, the physician may enter patient diary event data into the system. Additionally, physician's comments may be customized and added before printing.
The software is simple to learn and use. The standard QuickStep Wizard function guides users through the setup, administration, and analysis of Holter data. It provides graphic and text patient hookup instructions and features a concise, expandable overview menu of the steps of Holter testing for easy access to instructions on every part of the test; users simply click on the title of the next step and instructions appear beside the menu.

The basic software package may be enhanced with a variety of options.
Heart rate variability (HRV) software
The HRV option measures the regulation and balance between the activity of the sympathetic and vagus nerves in the sinoatrial node for a more complete picture of overall heart health. It provides flexible data trending in time and frequency domains to diagnose a wide range of conditions.
Pacemaker analysis software
The pacemaker analysis tool detects and tracks atrial, ventricular, and AV sequential pacemakers through capture, sense, fire, and miscapture scenarios.
