Cardiac EKG Testing in San Diego

patient in bed
Electrocardiograms, also known as EKG or ECG tests, are non-invasive procedures that look at the electrical activity of your heart. An ECG is usually ordered by your doctor for a variety of reasons. For instance, it can be used to evaluate your heart during an annual physical, assess the performance of a pacemaker, and monitor unexplained fatigue, trouble breathing, chest pain and palpitations. If you are over the age of 50 with a family history of heart disease, your doctor might order one to look for early warning signs. Here at Urgent Care & More in San Diego, we administer the test onsite and provide results to your doctor with a prompt turnaround time.

Check for a Healthy Heart

The procedure is extremely safe, and there are no risks or side effects involved. The only preparation is wearing comfortable clothes that allow easy access to your chest. Electrodes are applied to your chest, legs and arms. Wires connect you to the EKG machine, and the electrical activity of your heart is printed on special graph paper. An electrical signal that begins at the top of your heart and travels to the bottom triggers heartbeats. Heart problems often alter the electrical activity of your heart. The results can provide information regarding:
  • Previous heart attack
  • Heart rhythm
  • Signs of decreased oxygen delivery to the heart
  • Increased thickness of heart muscle
  • Electrical current conduction problems between heart chambers
If at any time during your EKG test our staff feels your condition requires further investigation, we will direct you to the hospital of your choice. In addition to electrocardiograms, we also provide x-rays when needed.
