Electrocardiogram (EKG)

An electrocardiogram (EKG) is a routine test used to record the heart’s electrical activity. This test can help a cardiologist identify any abnormalities in the heart’s rhythm. A technician will place small disks or electrodes on the patient's chest. These electrodes are attached to wires or leads connected to the electrocardiogram machine that will trace the path of electrical energy through the heart and provide a print-out for the cardiologist to review.

The procedure is painless and takes approximately 10 minutes to complete.
