Americans Would Rather Travel Than Pay High Costs

Affordable, quality care apparently trumps the commitment to travel. Approximately 50 million uninsured Americans are choosing medical tourism rather than pay for medical care in the US.

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.
