A Holter instead!

As I have mentioned before...that I would be undergoing my stress test at the Cardiac Department, RIPAS Hospital. I was mentally and physically ready for the test...but when I arrived there, the nurse told me that she would fix a holter on my body. I was so anxious to see the battery-operated device and all the wires that were going to be attached to my chest and tummy!

Below is the picture of the device that I wore for 24 hours......*credits to Mr Google*

A holter monitor is a recording device usually worn for 24 to 72 consecutive hours. The monitor records all heart activity during the time it is worn.

Guess what happened to me while this thing is fixed on my body?

I was distressed to the max...I felt really uncomfortable... and the wires kept on falling off...that I had to use the cello-tapes to fix the wires back. I felt that this thing had limited my activities.

I was soooooo veryyyyyy STRESSFUL!

As a result --> At around 4pm onwards....my blood pressure had turned high....up to 160/100 and my pulse rate palpitated as high as 110 beats per minute....*poor me*.....

Hubby rushed me to the AE and there I was monitored until my BP went down a bit and I was prescribed with a relaxing medicine....for me to sleep well so that my BP could turn back normal.

What a horrible experience! I know that I was making not-that-beautiful-graphs, but I am still praying to Allah that my heart will be in the healthy condition...amin...positive-minded...
