Your Healthcare Holiday Dollars go Farther in Thailand

Medical costs in the West are skyrocketing and patients are flocking to Asia to save, particularly to Thailand where outlays for treatment are generally five to ten times less than what they’d be in the US and Europe.

Electrocardiogram (EKG)

An electrocardiogram is a test that is used to monitor the electrical activity in the heart. The heart receives electrical signals from the sinoatrial node which maintain the rhythm of the heart beat. The EKG test records these signals and represents them in a paper. This test helps determine any disturbances in the heart beat due to any underlying illness.

The data collected from an EKG test can be utilized to determine if you are suffering from any cardiovascular disease. The test can also be used to determine any problems associated with the coronary arteries. EKG is also sometimes conducted when the patient is exercising. This is due to the fact that if the arteries are narrowed down, the data collected from EKG often seems normal.
