24-Hour Blood Pressure Holter Monitor

The Blood Pressure Holter Monitor is a small device the patient must carry with him, secured to the belt, to monitor blood pressure for 24 hours.

4Prevent Holter devices can detect variations in blood pressure, both circadian and at night, with the utmost precision, and define an actual blood pressure profile.

Application fields are many, including:

  • patients presenting sudden blood pressure fluctuations;
  • hypertensive patients under drug therapy to ensure that the medicine is effective at all times of the day;
  • patients who, despite having normal blood pressure, report symptoms that can be associated with an increase or reduction in blood pressure, such as dizziness, disorientation, hot flushes, perspiration, fainting sensation, “empty headedness” and nose bleed;
  • hypertensive patients who take medicines to lower blood pressure and occasionally experience disorders that can be associated with the therapy or which might depend on other causes.

Indicated for all cases of:

  • hypertension;
  • hypotension;
  • antihypertensive therapy monitoring;
  • cardiovascular prevention;
  • physical exercise.

The 4Prevent’s Holter device is placed by the pharmacist in a bag that can be secured to the trouser belt, while the bracelet is placed on the left arm and connected to the instrument with a small tube that does not hinder the person’s movements.

The patient will wear the device for 24 hours during which period blood pressure will be automatically measured every 15 minutes in the daytime and every 30 minutes at night.

At the end of the 24 hours the patient will once again visit the pharmacy where the device will be removed. The data stored will be sent through the telemedicine system to the 4Prevent cardiologist who will analyse them and draw up a report.

The report will then be sent to the Pharmacy that generally hands it to the client the next day.
