Important Facts

An EKG technician is a cardiology technologist with specialized training in operating equipment used to measure a patient’s heart performance. By attaching electrodes to a patient’s body and recording the electrical impulses transmitted by a patient’s heart with an EKG – also known as an electrocardiogram – the technician provides the data to the patient’s physician for later analysis.
