Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., accounting for more than 34 percent of all deaths annually. Every 38 seconds, an American dies of cardiovascular disease, according to the American Heart Association.
An EKG is a test that checks for problems with the electrical activity of your heart. It also is used to check the health of the heart, especially when conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes are present.
The screening is recommended for persons over 50 as well as those younger than 50 with risk factors, such as diabetes or high blood pressure. Additional screening criteria may apply, which allow us to see those at greatest risk for heart disease.
