wireless cardiac monitor for 3 weeks

Why do I need to wear the wireless cardiac monitor for 3 weeks instead of one week?  It goes off on its own frequently so shouldn't a week's worth of recordings be enough - because it's driving me crazy!!  Anyone know the answer?

Your doctor should have explained why. My guess would be that they want to c if there is a pattern or if its just a temporary thing you are experiencing.
