An electrocardiogram (also known as an EKG or ECG) is a common test that monitors the electrical activity of your heart.

Through an electrocardiogram, we can determine if electrical activity is normal, as well as if parts of your heart are being under- or overworked.

We may recommend an electrocardiogram for a variety of reasons, including:

  • Diagnosing unexplained chest pain or pressure
  • Checking for signs of heart disease
  • Determining if walls of the heart chambers are too thick
  • Confirming that medicines are working
  • Examining heart implants such as pacemakers

During the test, electrodes are placed on different areas of your body, including chest, arms, and legs. While lying down, you will be asked to stay still and breathe normally for about 5-10 minutes. Once the test is complete, the electrodes are removed and your skin is cleaned. 

Based on the results, we may offer a treatment plan or suggest further testing.
