How to return your Heart Monitor

Once your duration is complete please return your monitor to Heart Niagara. You will bring it back to our clinic. In the clinic waiting area there is a blue bin to return used monitors. Your monitor has an ID number which is attached to your patient file. Monitors will be read within 5-7 business days. Results will be forwarded to your doctor. Any positive stress test will be sent for a further scan or angiogram by the internists. Then the patient is referred back to their family doctor or local cardiologist.
