What is a Certified Electrocardiograph Technician (CET)?
An Electrocardiograph (EKG or ECG) Technician operates medical equipment that records and measures heart activity. The measurements are then used to help physicians (such as cardiologists) to diagnose and treat heart problems. EKG/ECG Techs examine the patient’s medical history and medication use and then attach electrodes to the chest, arms, and legs of the patient. The electrodes are used to measure trace electrical impulses that are transmitted by the patient’s heart. This process produces a printout, which can then be used by a physician to help determine diagnoses and appropriate treatment. EKG tests are oftentimes done as part of routine examination before surgeries, and in patients who are older and/or have a history of cardiovascular problems. This medical field is ideal for anyone with strong interest in high-tech mechanical equipment.
