CareerEKG Technician
DescriptionEKG technicians are noninvasive technicians who specialize in electrocardiography. An EKG, or electrocardiogram, monitors a patient’s heart by tracing electrical impulses given by the heart. The technician attaches electrodes to the chest, arms, and legs of the patient, and then controls the EKG machine to best obtain a reading, which they then give to the physician to look over and interpret. EKGs can be part of a physical exam done for routine check ups, or as part of preparation for surgery. They help the physician diagnose cardiovascular problems.
