N Engl J Med. 2014 Jun 26;370(26):2467-77 Randomized Controlled Trial, Multicenter Study
IN stroke, ischemic, cerebral infarction, transient ischemic attack, cryptogenic, embolic, atrial fibrillation The Use of
ambulatory ECG monitoring with a 30-day event-triggered recorder (attached to a dry-electrode (nonadhesive) belt worn around the chest)
As Diagnostic Tool
Is better Than
ambulatory 24-hour ECG monitoring
To detect atrial fibrillation episodes at 3 months : 16% in 30-days monitoring VS 3% with 24-hour monitoring
