King of Hearts Monitoring (KOH)
The King of Hearts can provide your physician with valuable information about the rhythm of your heart. It allows the physician to determine if your symptoms correlate with any changes or irregularities in your heart rhythm. The King of Hearts Express (KOH) is a patient activated monitor that is worn for 30 days. It is used to evaluate symptoms such as dizziness, palpitations, and chest pain. It captures EKG information before and after you experience a cardiac symptom.
This monitor is about the size of a pager and can be removed for personal hygiene, such as showering. Instruction on how to use the device takes about 30 minutes. No special preparation is required prior to testing.
KOH event monitoring is being performed in: Cleveland (NOH), Elyria (NOH), Elyria (OMG), Lorain (NOH), Medina (NOH & OMG), Middleburg Heights (Southwest - NOH & OMG), Olmsted Falls (OMG), Sandusky (NOH) and Westlake (NOH).
