New Jersey Cardiologist: What Is an EKG? - Cross County Cardiology

New Jersey cardiologistSeptember 13th, 2017. Hackensack, NY. Cross County Cardiology is announcing the publication of a new article that explains one of the most valuable tests used in the practice of Cross County Cardiology. According to these New Jersey heart doctors, an electrocardiogram (or EKG) can help them diagnose potential problems with your heart’s electrical activity.

Dr. Rick Pumill, noted New Jersey cardiologist and medical director of this prestigious New Jersey clinic, describes what to expect during an EKG test. “First, you can relax, because a standard EKG test is non-invasive, poses no risks, and only takes 5 to 10 minutes to complete. The test only measures your heart’s own electrical activity – no electricity will pass to your body through the electrodes, and there is no danger of getting an electrical shock.”

CCC hopes that when people learn more about the tests used to keep their hearts healthy, they’ll be more likely to schedule regular checkups. If you would like to learn more about heart health, see the center’s website at:
