An ECG is used to measure the rate and regularity of heartbeats, as well as the size and position of the chambers, the presence of any damage to the heart, and the effects of drugs or devices used to regulate the heart, such as a pacemaker.
This workshop is to understand the technical components of Electrocardiography, the roles and responsibilities of the technician and how it relates to patient care.
An electrocardiogram, or ECG, is just one of the critical care tests that can save many lives each year. ECG Technicians may be the first to spot problems of the heart that might prove to be fatal if not detected through other methods. Electrocardiogram testing is a non-invasive procedure that gives the physician a clearer view of the heart in order to detect abnormalities or irregularities within the chambers, arteries, and ventricles.
