Online Electrocardiograph EKG Technician Certification Training Program
Electrocardiograph ( EKG ) Technicians work closely with cardiovascular technologists. Technicians
who specialize in electrocardiogram (EKG) testing are known as cardiographic or electrocardiograph
(EKG) technicians. Electrocardiograph ( EKG ) Technicians conduct procedures and manage equipment that
tests, monitors and documents electrical activity of a patients' cardiovascular system. These test
are used to assist cardiologists and physicians in identifying and treating cardiac and blood vessel
abnormalities. These procedures are non-invasive and usually conducted as part of a routine examination
before surgical procedures. These types of test include standard electrocardiogram exams, 12-lead
placement, cardiac catheterization, Holter monitoring, phonocardiography, stress testing, and
vectorcardiography. The tests also detect and diagnose medical illnesses such as coronary artery
disease, angina, arrhythmias and pericarditis.
The electrocardiograph technician is initially responsible for informing the patient about an
upcoming test and documenting the patients base information about the patients medical history,
medication use and vital signs. Then the Electrocardiography Technician describes the procedure to
patient and attaches electrodes to the chest, arms, and legs to prepare them for the EKG tests. The
electrodes are then connected to an electrocardiograph or Holter monitor, which measures and records
electrical pulses from the heart. The results of the activity are displayed printouts or computer
monitors for the doctors analysis. Electrocardiography technicians monitor patients for the duration of
EKG tests and make adjustments to EKG machines to get accurate results. As soon as a test is completed,
the technician removes the electrodes, assures the patient's vital signs are stable, and relays the
results to a physician. Many technicians give assistance to doctors in analyzing the results to make
accurate diagnoses of heart issues.
Employment of cardiovascular technologists and technicians, including vascular technologists, is
projected to grow 30 percent from 2012 to 2022, much faster than the average for all occupations.
As imaging technology evolves, medical facilities will use it to replace more invasive, costly
procedures. Technological advances and less expensive equipment now allow more procedures to be done
outside of hospitals. Third-party payers encourage the use of these noninvasive measures over invasive
Although hospitals remain the primary employer of diagnostic medical sonographers, cardiovascular
technologists and technicians, and vascular technologists, employment is projected to grow more rapidly
in physicians' offices and in medical and diagnostic laboratories. Employment in these health care
settings is projected to increase because of a shift toward outpatient care whenever possible.
As the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active later in life, the need to diagnose
medical conditions—such as blood clots and tumors—will likely increase, and imaging technology is a
tool used in making these diagnoses. Additionally, federal health legislation will expand the number of
patients who have access to health insurance, increasing patient access to medical care. Diagnostic
imaging workers will continue to be needed to use and maintain the equipment needed for diagnosis and
