What’s the difference between an EKG and a ECG?
As you read about EKG Technician training, it may become confusing because some people use EKG and some use ECG. However, even though the abbreviations are slightly different, they actually both refer to the exact same thing: an electrocardiogram. An electrocardiogram is a test that healthcare professionals use to measure and monitor the electrical activity of the heart. Use of an EKG (ECG) can provide helpful data regarding a person’s heart health.Get Started Today
