What do the test results mean?
Abnormal results show irregular heart rhythms. By comparing the diary entries with the heart record, the doctor may be able to determine the cause of the arrhythmias. For example, if the rhythm disturbances are connected with stressful events, there may be an emotional basis for the arrhythmias that can be treated with stress management. Examining the diary along with the Holter monitor results can also suggest various physical reasons for the arrhythmias.
