Abstract:

Monitoring patients with serious cardiovascular problems is invaluable in preventing further crises and achieving a faster, more effective attention. To this end, noninvasive cardiologic tests such as dynamic electrocardiography e.g., Holter have proven useful in clinical practice. The present document puts forward a novel Holter system that benefits from the GSM mobile telephony standard widespread technology. The suggested design adds to the traditional Holter capabilities the attractive features of real-time processing and possibility of monitoring the patients heart anywhere, anytime.
