Abstract

Although ambulatory electrocardiographic (ECG) monitors are increasingly being used to detect arrhythmias in outpatient and home care settings, little is known about patients' reactions to these devices and their ability to use them correctly. This study determined the feasibility of this type of monitoring. It provides clinicians a research-based approach to patient care and teaching in the home.
