“Heart monitor” is a general term for a device used to monitor the electrical activity of the heart. It can include various types of devices, such as Holter monitors, event monitors, implantable cardiac monitors (ICMs), wearable tech and mobile EKG devices that provide medical-grade heart readings for home use by patients.

An EKG is a common tool used in heart monitoring. It conducts a specific test that records the electrical activity of the heart over a short period. It produces a visual representation of the heart’s electrical impulses, which is called an electrocardiogram.
