It will never be possible to simulate in the laboratory all of the aspects of a given task which impinge on the myocardium, such as the relative degree of isometric exercise and the relative autonomic influences. For this reason, the Holter monitor, which can detect both ischemia and arrhythmias during routine activity, is ideally suited for followup of ambulatory patients. It may be the best diagnostic tool for the detection of Prinzmetal angina. By recording the effect on the ECG of the stresses of daily living, it is a superb technique for evaluating cardiac function and an indispensable aid for detecting arrhythmias and evaluating the effectiveness of antiarrhythmic agents.
