Electrocardiography (EKG)

Immediate EKG interpretation

EKGs can be performed and interpreted on-site or performed at sites around the region and interpreted by Children’s team members. Respiratory care practitioners and nurses are solely dedicated to pediatrics and highly experienced in the unique cardiovascular problems of children. Children’s performs or interprets 9,000 EKGs per year.

The team is available to physicians for immediate EKG interpretation via fax, Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. and by arrangement outside clinic hours. Interpretations typically can be faxed back within one hour.
