Has anybody had to wear an Ambulatory Monitor? I have just received a letter from the Hospital advising me to attend a fitting on 2nd September. I completely understand the use of the monitor, but I don't understand why I have to wear it. I have been having regular AF episodes for the past 8 weeks and up until Wednesday they always came on a weekend. I spoke with the cardiologist about my episodes on Monday and he agreed the best way forward would be to refer me to an EP to discuss a possible ablation. I've been waiting for the referral letter to see an EP, but I get a letter from the hospital asking me to wear this device. Is it a case of they don't believe me? I am going to call the Cardiologists secretary today, as the trend of my AF episodes was bucked on Tuesday morning, as I awoke early with a flutter in my chest. I am still in AF, which is the longest I have had an episode since changing to Felacainide.
