Meet the demand for cross-trained health professionals by adding EKG Technician skills to your current résumé.
Healthcare facilities look for health professionals with EKG tech background to assist in the detection and/or confirmation of problems with the heart that might prove to be fatal if not detected.
EKG (Electrocardiogram) Technicians perform ECG tests that record and monitor electrical impulses transmitted by the heart. An electrocardiograph (EKG) technician administers diagnostic cardiac tests to patients pre-surgery or to patients who may have cardiac problems; the tests help detect, and monitor medical conditions such as heart disease, arrhythmias, pericarditis and angina.
Elite Medical Academy offers the EKG Technician test prep training course to prepare healthcare workers to take the National Healthcareer Association (NHA) Certified EKG Technician Exam. This course addresses EKG-related medical terminology, cardiac anatomy & physiology, rhythm, and basic interpretation.
