An electrocardiogram (EKG) is a test that measures the electrical activity of your heart through small electrodes. EKGs can reveal evidence of a heart attack or heart disease. They can also give clues about heart birth defects, problems with your heart valves, muscles and pericardial sacs, irregular heartbeats, artery blockages and heart failure.
One of the jobs of an EKG technician is to administer this vital test. EKG techs may also instruct patients on use of the Holter monitor, which is a portable version of the EKG. EKG technicians with advanced training may administer “stress tests” which involve testing patients while they use a treadmill.
This course can be intense so we've partnered with the NHA to make it fun and easily accessible.
The online resources include AUDIO text book (the book/lecture is read aloud to you), interactive knowledge checks, flash cards, ect.
$600+ $118 test fee to be paid directly to the National Healthcareer Association at the end of the course.
