    • Anatomical factors like chest size and, the heart’s location inside the chest.

    Questions About EKG Test?

    Why and When Can You Take the EKG Test at Our Practice

    An Electrocardiogram is recommended to diagnose various heart conditions. At our practice in The Woodlands, TX, an EKG is recommended if our cardiologist suspects alarming symptoms like palpitations, chest pain, extreme dizziness, fatigue, or shortness of breath. Furthermore, an Electrocardiogram is capable of identifying issues like:

    • Heart attacks (sudden blockage of blood supply to the heart)
    • Cardiomyopathy (thickening or enlargement of walls around the heart)
    • Coronary heart disease (blockage in coronary arteries due to fat build-up)
    • Arrhythmias (disturbance in the rhythm of the heartbeat)

    If a patient already has a heart condition, then we might recommend a series of EKGs to be performed to monitor the effects of our treatments.
