Electrocardiography Tecnician (EKG) Certification
This course prepares the participant to work as an electrocardiogram (EKG) technician either in a medical office, in a hospital or diagnostic centers. The electrocardiogram is a basic examination in the evaluation of a patient that graphically records the electrical activity of the heart and is performed with electronic medical equipment that collects electrical information through electrodes that are placed in specific places on the human body.
Opportunities as Electrocardiogram EKG Technician
In this course the student is taught the basic elements of electricity, the anatomy of the heart, the circulatory system and the type of information that is collected by each electrode through the graph that represents that activity. The importance of performing this study with excellence depends on the preparation of the technician not only in performing the diagnostic test but also in the timely interpretation of patients with an acute condition where the speed with which action is taken in some cases depends on the life of the patient. The information obtained is used by the doctor to make the diagnosis and define the conduct or type of treatment to be taken with each patient.
