General Information

An electrocardiogram, or EKG, has helped save the lives of many patients in emergency situations. Within minutes, an EKG test can reveal vital aspects about your heart, such as its rhythm and rate. EKGs can detect heart attacks, arrhythmia and other serious heart & vascular conditions. EKGs aren’t only useful in critical settings; our team also uses EKGs to diagnose, treat and monitor chronic heart problems.

At Goshen Heart & Vascular Center, we offer complete heart diagnostic services, including EKGs to provide the communities we serve with the heart care they need. Talk to your primary care provider about receiving an EKG or call (574) 537-5000 for a referral.

What to expect during an EKG test

An EKG is a painless procedure that takes about 10 minutes to complete. A trained specialist will perform the test by attaching sticky electrode patches to your chest, arms and legs. These patches pick up your heart’s electrical activity and display the results on a graph.

An EKG provides vital information about your heart’s functioning. With quick-performing EKGs, your heart care team can get the information they need to deliver specialized heart care. We’re equipped to perform EKGs in our emergency room, your doctor’s office or an ambulance.
