Electrocardiograms (EKG's)

An electrocardiogram, abbreviated EKG or ECG, is a test that measures the electrical activity of the heart.  An EKG can determine that a heart attack has occurred.  An EKG can help predict if a heart attack is developing and monitors changes in heart rhythm.  It is used as a screening tool to determine if a candidate is able to complete strenuous, physical activity.  All EKG results are read immediately by our Medical Providers at the time of the examination and are sent to a cardiologist for further interpretation.
