An electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) is a simple, painless test that checks for problems with the electrical activity of your heart. An EKG translates the heart's electrical activity into line tracings on paper. The spikes and dips in the line tracings are called waves. Dr. Matzer personally interprets each EKG.
An EKG shows:
How fast your heart is beating
Whether the rhythm of your heartbeat is steady or irregular
The strength and timing of electrical signals as they pass through each part of your heart
