Cardiac and Holter Monitoring

Our range of standard cardiac and Holter monitors:

LifeStar AF Express™ Auto-Detect Looping Monitor

The LifeStar AF Express continuously records the heart’s rhythm, automatically saving the pre-event portion of the ECG, while continuing to record its post-event portion. Unique algorithms, detect and automatically record asymptomatic events.


  • Simple one-button recording for symptomatic events
  • Programmable triggers
  • 10 minutes of programmable pre- and post- event memory
    Date and time stamped
  • Auto-trigger and manual send of AF, Bradycardia and Tachycardia

Explorer™ Looping Monitor

The Explorer looping monitor continuously records a patient’s ECG. When an event is manually recorded, the monitor automatically goes into a loop-mode to save the selected pre-symptom portion of the ECG rhythm, while continuing to record a post-symptom portion of the ECG.


  • 8 minutes of programmable memory
  • Programmed for 3 events
  • Pre-symptom: 60 seconds
  • Post-symptom: 27 seconds
  • Date and time stamped

Micro ER Non-looping Monitor

The MicroER is suitable for patients with sustained symptoms of over 60 seconds or for those with electrode sensitivity issues. With built-in electrodes, the MicroER allows patients to place the monitor over their chest when they feel a symptom and press a button to record. The Micro ER single-lead ECG non-looping event monitor can record and store up to 32 seconds of real-time ECG. Each monitor can store up to 6 events before transmitting the information over the telephone.


  • Extended memory holds six recordings of 32 seconds each
  • Extended battery life
  • Lightweight
  • Date and time stamped

LifeStar ACT Ex Holter

The LifeStar ACT Ex combines the technology of a 3-channel ambulatory cardiac telemetry platform and remote retrieval of digital Holter data, to provide an in-depth arrhythmia diagnosis and management solution in a single easy to use patient device.

This two part service begins as a 24-48 hour Holter analysis; in cases where the Holter has been inconclusive, the service is extended to ACT telemetry for up to 30 days.

  • ACT auto-trigger/auto-send features for abnormal arrhythmias during Holter analysis
  • Remote data retrieval using cellular technology for patient convenience and compliance
  • Accurate diagnosis and quantification of AF and other cardiac rhythm disturbance, including:
    – AF burden
    – Heart rate variability
    – PVC count
    – ST analysis
    – QT analysis


Standard features

  • Patient-friendly functionality for improved compliance
  • Up to 30 days of retrievable ECG Memory
  • Remotely programmable
  • Automatically records and transmits daily recording


Unique features

  • 24-48 hour Holter analysis
  • 3 channel ECG for more specific and sensitive diagnostic yields
  • 6-hour sensor memory
  • ACT enhanced reporting features with 24 hour heart rate trend report
  • Heart rate average
  • Arrhythmia sample analysis report (AF, Brady, Tachy and Pause)
  • Number and duration of episodes
  • Daily arrhythmia percentage
  • ECG strip correlating to the baseline, daily, or manual recording and physician notification
  • All other ECG strips available on request

Digitrak Plus Holter

The Digitrack Plus digital Holter is a lightweight compact device, utilizing digital “flash memory” technology, and providing a continuous diagnostic 3-channel ECG recording for up to 48 hours. The device may also be set for 3-channel pacemaker annotation. A patient event button and digital clock enable correlation of symptoms and activity with ECG changes. Patented EASI derived 12-lead ECG view is possible via a 5-lead cable.


LifeWatch monitoring devices are diagnostic tools and not part of an emergency service. Heart strips transmitted by a device are not viewed immediately by technicians. If when viewed, the technician sees an arrhythmia that is potentially harmful or life threatening, LifeWatch will attempt to facilitate care for the patient through either their doctor or an emergency medical service, although this care may be delayed.
