Electrocardiograms (EKG)

The electrocardiogram is a test used to evaluate the rhythm and activity of the heart. It supplies information about heart rate, regularity of heartbeats, oxygen supply to the heart muscle, and the heart’s structure. It can identify a previous heart attack and can be useful in identifying abnormal heart rhythms.

The entire procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. Ten adhesive EKG patches will be placed at specific points on your chest. EKG lead wires will be attached to each patch and the technician will record the electrical activity through the lead. Once connected, it takes about 1 minute to record your EKG.
