The monitor is connected with leads to your chest and is worn from your appointment time till the following day when the Technologist removes it. You will write your activities and any symptoms in a diary while the monitor is worn.
Pacemaker Check (appointment required): Your pacemaker function can be checked with a magnet and ECG recording. Changes to your pacemaker are done at the Pacemaker Clinic at the Regina General Hospital.
