 EKG Technician

EKG Tech


An EKG technician is a cardiology technologist with specialized training in operating equipment used to measure a patient’s heart performance.


By attaching electrodes to a patient’s body and recording the electrical impulses transmitted by a patient’s heart with an EKG – also known as an electrocardiogram – the technician provides the data to the patient’s physician for later analysis.

Job Outlook


As the health care industry expands because of technological advances in medicine and the growth and aging of the population, there will be an increased need for health care workers. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, overall employment of diagnostic medical sonographers and cardiovascular technologists and technicians is projected to grow 17 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. As the large baby-boom population ages, the need to diagnose medical conditions—such as blood clots and heart disease—will likely increase. Imaging technology is a tool used in making these diagnoses.*
