ECG Certification Course with Basic Arrhythmia Recognition.
A basic ECG traces electrical impulses transmitted by the heart, technicians attach electrodes to the patient’s chest, arms, and legs. An ECG Technician manipulates switches on an ECG machine to obtain a reading. An ECG is printed out for interpretation by the physician. This test is done before most kinds of surgery or as part of a routine physical examination, especially on persons who have reached middle age or who have a history of cardiovascular problems. ECG technicians must be reliable, have mechanical aptitude, and be able to follow detailed instructions. A pleasant, relaxed manner for putting patients at ease is an asset. They must be articulate as they must communicate technically with physicians and also explain procedures simply to patients.
