How many leads does your Holter have?
ScottCare’s Chroma2 Holter monitor is available with 5 or 7 leads and will automatically record 3 unique channels of continuous ECG.
Can this device perform 24 and 48-hour Holter tests?
Yes! The Chroma2 can be programmed for durations of 1 hour up to 21 days depending on the customer’s needs.
Does the patient still need to record their symptoms in a diary?
Your preference! The Chroma2 includes an easy-to-use digital diary that allows patients to mark and notate their specific symptoms during recordings for more accurate diagnosis and correlation of patient symptoms to ECG.
Can we change the Holter programming settings?
Yes! The Chroma2 allows for changes to the settings, such as:
- Recording configuration
- Lead placement
- Recording duration
- Sample rate
How big is your Holter?
The Chroma2 is lightweight (2.4 oz) and smaller than a deck of playing cards, improving patient compliance and comfort.
What happens if a lead falls off the Holter during recording?
The Chroma2 automatically provides both visual and audio notification of the “lead off” error and provides an anatomical diagram to aid the patient in re-attaching the lead.
Is the Holter waterproof?
No. While the device is not waterproof, it is water resistant and is protected via its neoprene pouch from any accidental water contact.
How many batteries does the Holter use?
The device will operate up to 72 hours on a single AAA battery.
Can the Holter use rechargeable batteries?
Yes! Rechargeable batteries can be used for 24-hour recording. However, ScottCare recommends the use of new alkaline batteries for longer duration testing.
Are you able to program the Holter without a computer?
Yes! Along with the easy-to-use Chroma Configurator, the Chroma2 can be programmed independently while in a patient room if you don’t have immediate access to a computer.
How does the Holter manage patients with a pacemaker?
The Chroma2 allows for the identification of patients with implantable pacemakers and defibrillators, providing the most accurate analysis using the HolterCare software.
How do we confirm the quality of the ECG signal during the hook up process?
The Chroma2’s state-of-the-art OLED color screen displays each of the 3 ECG channels during the hook-up process to confirm lead placement and device function. This helps to ensure that the recorded signal quality will be adequate for technical analysis.
