An electrocardiogram (also known as EKG or ECG) is a non-invasive test that measures the electrical activity of the heart and can detect some, but not all, heart abnormalities leading to sudden cardiac death.
An EKG can sometimes indicate the presence of abnormalities which later testing determines are within normal limits.
There is no known risk associated with receiving an EKG.
There is a possibility of minor skin irritation and redness where the electrodes were placed.

For asymptomatic young adults, we recommend repeating the EKG test every two years.
The heart changes over time, and some conditions are progressive and may not show on an earlier EKG, and there are conditions which do not manifest on every EKG, so a repeated test better allows capturing these changes and conditions.

Students approved for the free and reduced lunch program at SEDOL will be tested at no charge.
