When should i do my ECG test for qtc interval?

Recommended Posts

I'm not a doc, but IMO, I think that a Holter monitor is more accurate in assessing cardiac function than a simple ECG/EKG.....An ECG/EKG measures the heart function for only a very short period of time, and might not catch everything.


A Holter monitor assesses function over a 24-48 hour period...I have actually done a Holter test in the past.

As for whether to to do an ECG in morning or evening to assess QTC interval, I admit I don't really know what the best time of day is.
