EKG Technicians are Critical in Healthcare

When it comes to saving lives, EKG technicians are integral members of the medical community. Meaning "Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG)" these professionals use advanced non-invasive technologies, to accurately diagnose cardiovascular irregularities and disease.

You’ll be on the front lines of saving people’s lives.

Every day as an EKG technician is exciting and very rewarding. You might find yourself working in an emergency room or trauma unit, administering EKG tests to patients who have come in the doors complaining of chest pains. Is it a narrow artery, abnormal rhythm, or something else that has caused the chest pain?

Once the test results come back, you will interpret the data and highlight anything you see of concern and input this into the patient’s chart for the attending physician.

Why We love  Healthcare

The healthcare industry is one of the fastest growing industries around the globe. This growth is due in large part to an aging baby boomer population, who are requiring more medical services than ever before.

Recent global data has suggested that heart disease is on the rise. In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, with more than 600,000 people dying each year from it.

While these numbers are troubling, they indicate an increased need for ECG technicians to provide vital services to those suffering from this chronic and deadly disease.

Just how fast is the EKG technician field growing?

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (http://bls.gov) has predicted that demand for EKG technicians may increase by 7% between the years 2018 and 2028, much faster than for all other occupations. With certification in hand, you could be able to find employment in this exciting and growing industry.

“EKG Tech is a great choice to get into healthcare…it's a career that has it all!”
