Answer

Continuous ECG recordings (eg, via telemetry, 24-hour Holter monitors, event monitors, or implantable loop recorders) are indicated. Continuous monitoring of cardiac rhythm with telemetry can be performed on hospitalized patients in the coronary or progressive care units.

In the outpatient setting, a number of portable recording devices (eg, Holter monitors, event monitors) can be used and should be aimed at symptom-rhythm correlation.
