A patient with palpitations and suspected arrhythmia underwent Holter and external loop recorder monitoring. No arrhythmias were detected by these traditional monitoring methods. An insertable loop recorder (ILR) was placed on the patient’s chest and used as an extended loop recorder. An arrhythmia was ultimately recorded by the externally placed ILR leading to appropriate treatment.
