You will change into a medical gown, with the opening in front. You need to take off all jewelry and upper body garments. The Technician will ask you to lay on your back. Please let your Technician know if you have complications lying down. They will attach ten electrodes, one on each upper arm, one on each inner ankle and six on your chest. With the leads connected, they will ask you to lie still without talking. The EKG machine will record the rhythm of your heart for 10 seconds. When this is complete, the Technician will ask you to continue to lie still while they show a practitioner the report. This allows the practitioner to decide if retesting is needed. Once we are sure the test is good, you may move and sit up.
