Cardiology is the study all things related to the heart and a specialized field of medicine. It’s the discipline that researches, diagnoses and treats heart injuries and diseases as well as their causes.

What is an Electrocardiogram?

An EKG, which stands for electrocardiogram, records electrical impulses in your heart. In cardiology, the EKG is a frequently used tool to establish whether a patient has already experienced a heart attack or in imminent danger of having one. This information can help both your primary physician and your cardiologist decide what treatments will work best for you.

For more information or to schedule an EKG, call 201-854-5109.
