Dr. Saks introduces herself and shares what an electrocardiogram/EKG/ECG is.

Dr. Saks:
Hi, my name is Shani Saks. I am a non-invasive cardiologist and Medical Director of the Women’s Heart and Wellness Program at the Arizona Heart Institute in Phoenix, Arizona.

It’s a very simple test that tells us the heart rhythm, whether it’s too fast or too slow or skipping beats. It tells us potentially if the person has a blood flow problem to the heart or if they had a prior heart attack.
