An EKG is a diagnostic test that is used to evaluate your heart rate, rhythm, and can be used as a tool to help diagnose other cardiac abnormalities. EKG's are commonly ordered if you are experiencing chest pain, shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat or if monitoring chronic heart conditions. It is also common for a physician to order an EKG prior to surgery. An EKG takes about 5 minutes to perform. Ten electrodes, small adhesive patches, are applied to your chest area and a wire is connected to each electrode. Once a good EKG result is obtained, we remove the wires and electrodes. If coming into the office for an EKG, we ask that you do no use any lotion or powder on your skin prior to your test and avoid wearing hose.
