Information about EKG - CPT 0178T, 0179T

An electrocardiogram, or EKG, is a simple, painless test that records the heart's electrical activity. This test is used to detect and evaluate many heart problems, such as heart attack, arrhythmia, and heart failure. EKG results also can suggest other disorders that affect heart function. 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.
