Cardiac Testing FAQ

What does an EKG test do?

An EKG is a quick, easy, painless test that can measure the heart for defects or damages.

How long does an EKG take?

An EKG takes approximately 3 minutes to perform.

How often should I get an EKG?

Preventatively, an EKG test is recommended once a year. However cardiac patients should test more often. If there are any changes in symptoms, it is recommended to have a test performed immediately.

What does an echocardiogram test do?

An Echocardiogram test uses sonography to take live video and picture which can identify and monitor any defects or damages to the heart.

How should I prepare for an echocardiogram?

There is no preparation required. It is recommended to wear comfortable clothing as the test requires you to lay down for approximately 20-30 minutes.

What does a stress test do?

By visualizing the heart at peak exercise/stress, it is possible to identify any weakened heart muscle. Weakened heart muscle is commonly due to coronary artery, the artery supplying the heart, blockages And can lead to heart attack if left untreated.

Is there any special preparation for a stress test?

While it is recommended that you wear comfortable shoes, no other preparation is generally required with the exception of possibily skipping some blood pressure medication. If your medication qualifies, you will be notified.

For the home telemetry test, may I shower with my monitor on?

As the machine cannot get wet, you should remove the monitor before showering and put it back on after. The same is the case if you are planning on going on a boat or swimming.

Am I eligible for a home BP monitor?

It depends on your insurance eligibility.
