Managing heart conditions with long-term monitoring

Get answers about your heart

Your doctor may recommend an insertable heart monitor, also known as a "loop recorder," if you’re experiencing symptoms that could be related to your heart.

*Not every person will receive the same results. Talk to your doctor about your treatment options.

Stroke patients are at high risk for atrial fibrillation (AFib), which may lead to another stroke.

Atrial fibrillation management

AFib is a common condition but, if left untreated, it can lead to stroke.

Unexplained fainting

People faint for many reasons, but it can be a sign of an underlying heart condition.

Heart palpitations

Heart palpitations are relatively common, but can be a sign of a more serious heart condition.

Speak to a heart specialist.

If you’re experiencing symptoms that may indicate a heart condition, you may need to speak to a heart doctor (cardiologist) or a special kind of cardiologist known as an electrophysiologist. A cardiologist acts as the “plumber” of the heart and deals with the heart and its blood vessels, while an electrophysiologist acts as the “electrician” of the heart and manages its electrical signals.
