February is Heart Health Month!

Posted on: February 6, 2020

February is American Heart Month! If you have experienced chest pain, have high risk factors for heart disease or previous heart troubles, your physician may choose an EKG to help them gain insight into your condition.

There are a few reasons why your physician may wish to conduct an EKG:

Check the heart’s rhythm

Identify any underlying cause of chest pain or pressure

Determine the cause of heart disease symptoms such as shortness of breath, dizziness, or palpitations

Identify structural problems of the heart’s chambers

Determine the effectiveness of heart medications or a pacemaker

Evaluate heart health based on other factors such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, smoking, or diabetes
