The ZIO® Patch is a new form of ambulatory cardiac monitoring described as a wearable patch. The ZIO Patch is unique compared to traditional Holter monitors as the monitoring device has no leads, no wires and no batteries. The ZIO Patch weighs just a few ounces that is a peel and stick device that is worn for an extended monitoring period of up to 14 days. Even though the device is worn for a longer duration than a Holter monitor, the ZIO Patch is said to be preferred by nearly 80% of patients as compared to a traditional 24 Holter monitor.
