No. It was an outside Doc. The Monitor is from the same company that the VA uses.

After my by-pass surgery, I wore one for 60 days. It was actually installed during the by pass procedure, which to me seems a more accurate way of reading what it is saying. I wore it for 32 days in the intensive care for 32 days and they sent me out of intensive care with it to the transition hospital room. I wore it home for 7 days. So I wore it for 60 days total. It tells them everything your heart does. That info is recorded on a DVD.

Hope this helps, I had no problems with mine.

I wore one for over a month and I have the progress notes here with me of the results. Basically, it's so sensitive it picks up everything. Mine was very unclear due to what the specialist described in his notes as alot of artifact. occasional low rates and PVCs. So they advised if my problem continues to have it requested again. It didn't show any problems that required immediate attention. So I didn't pursue it. However I still continue to have chest pain every now and then with dizziness and irregular heart beats that I always get my husband to verify by feeling it. Then I go lay down until it resolves. Sometimes alot of activity will bring on these episodes as well. A better test for me probably would be a stress test. Sometimes our medications can do a number on us too. I wonder if back issues or spinal chord issues can cause heart palpitations or chest pain?

My PCP had requested it because coincedently I was at the clinic for an appt and they took my vital signs I remember having a little discomfort in my chest but usually it was worse than that however, when they took my pulse it was around low 40s. They did do an ekg to validate and it was around 38 so they took me to the ER and gave my oxygen and did some blood work everything check out ok and my pulse eventually went back up to high 50s low 60s and few days later my PCP called and explained he want me to go by the heart clinin and get the monitor. So thats how I got to try the monitor.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
