Prolonged electrocardiographic (ECG) monitoring is among the most valuable tools for determining if T-LOC is due to syncope, and thereafter substantiating the cause of syncope. Currently, the available prolonged ECG monitoring techniques include in-hospital telemetry, 1- to 7-day ambulatory Holter monitoring, external loop recorders (ELRs), remote (at home) telemetry, and implantable loop recorders (ILRs).
