In this service, the provider monitors the patient’s heart rhythm while the patient is experiencing cardiac symptoms. He places electrocardiogram leads of an event recorder on the patient's chest, which can record and transmit the patient’s heart rhythm information for up to 30 days. The patient uses the device to transmit the ECG tracing before and during symptoms such as chest pain. Subsequently, the provider will analyze and advise the patient on the most appropriate action to take. This code represents both the technical and professional component of the transmission of the ECG information and its analysis.
