EKG Program

Certified EKG technicians make a difference every day

By administering EKGs — testing the electronic activity of the heart through small electrode patches attached to the body — you'll be making a life-changing difference, helping people of all ages prevent and treat heart disease.

 

EKG Technicians perform ECG tests that record and monitor electrical impulses transmitted by the heart.  An EKG Technician administers diagnostic cardiac tests to patients pre-surgery or who may have cardiac problems.  The tests help detect and monitor medical conditions such as heart disease, arrhythmias, pericarditis, and angina.

As an EKG tech, you may perform some or all of the following tasks:

  • Set up and administer EKGs (electrocardiograms) and stress tests

  • Prepare patients for Holter or ambulatory monitoring

  • Edit and deliver final test results to physicians for analysis

  • Schedule appointments

  • Transcribe physicians' interpretations
