ELECTROCARDIOGRAPH TECHNICIAN PROGRAM

image24

Class Starts Friday March 8, 2019

Electrocardiograph Technicians (ECG/EKG)  are noninvasive technicians who specialize in electrocardiography. They use special equipment and medical techniques to record the electrical impulses transmitted by a patient's heart. Data acquired by Electrocardiograph Technician assists physicians and cardiologists in diagnosing medical conditions in patients. 


ECG Technicians also might perform stress tests. This involves hooking up a patient to an ECG monitor for a baseline reading and then monitoring the patient's heart while he or she exercises on a treadmill.   

  

With advanced training, ECG Technicians can administer Holter monitoring tests. With this procedure, the technician attaches an ECG monitor to a patient, then allows the patient to go about his or her normal routine for a 24-hour period. Next, the ECG technician removes the monitor and takes it to a scanner, from which he or she can print out the data recorded by the machine.


ECG Technicians may also work as telemetry technicians.  Telemetry technicians, or electrocardiogram technicians, help cardiologists and other healthcare service providers by monitoring patients' EKG wave They interpret results and are able to recognize irregular heart functions, such as an arrhythmia.


Most EKG technicians work in hospitals or clinics providing direct patient care through EKG testing. Because EKGs are usually performed in response to heart issues, jobs are easiest to find in hospitals and other places where patients receive emergency and diagnostic care such as labs and diagnostic imaging centers. Some doctors’ offices and nursing homes do have their own EKG technicians on site to make life easier for patients
