An electrocardiogram will be performed at Riverview Health or one of its physician practices. Electrodes will be attached to your chest, arms and legs to detect the electrical currents of your heart. A standard EKG takes just a few minutes.
An electrocardiogram is an excellent diagnostic tool when you’re not feeling well or your doctor is concerned about your heart. However, getting a baseline EKG when you have no symptoms provides results that can later be used to compare with an EKG test when you are having problems. Having a baseline of your heart’s electrical activity helps your doctor better diagnose and treat your heart trouble.
