ECGs are performed at many of our collection centres by appointment and the tracing can either be delivered direct to the doctor or it can be returned with a full cardiologist report.
Holter Monitors are performed at the request of your doctor and provide a 24 hour record of your ECG with information about heart rate and rhythm.
- The Holter Monitor is worn for 24 hours and has to be fitted and removed at one of our collection centres by appointment.
- 24-hr Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitors are designed to measure blood pressure at regular intervals throughout the day and night.
- This test is recommended as a more reliable assessment of blood pressure than single reading.
- The recording device and pressure cuff have to be fitted and removed at one of our designated collection centres by appointment (or at a more convenient location by special arrangement) and you need to return to the same centre.
ECGs and Holter Monitors are reimbursed under Medicare (bulk-billed).
Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitors are not yet reimbursed under Medicare (there is no charge for DVA Gold Card holders).
The standard charge is $90.
