An EKG is a test that records the electrical activity of your ticker through small electrode patches that a technician attaches to the skin of your chest, arms, and legs.
EKGs are quick, safe, and painless. With this test, our cardiologist will be able to:
- Check your heart rhythm
- See if you have poor blood flow to your heart muscle (this is called ischemia)
- Check on things that are abnormal, such as thickened heart muscle
- Detect if there are significant electrolyte abnormalities, such as high potassium or high or low calcium.
