Halter Monitor

Has anyone that has had head and neck cancer had a halter monitor done? I have experienced four episodes of blacking out since I found out that I had cancer and yesterday the doctor told me that he wanted to do a halter monitor test on me so I am curious if anyone else with the same type of cancer as me has had this done or experienced times of getting warm, dizzy, and passing out. Thanks in advance for any discussion.
