Dr. Saks explains the medical procedure for an electrocardiogram/EKG/ECG.
The electrocardiogram is just a simple test where they will, the medical assistant will ask the lady to loosen up her shirt, they will put a number of stickers across the chest hooked up to wires, and the patient just lays still for just a few seconds, and a machine makes the tracing of the heart on a piece of paper, and then they unhook the wires and the stickers.
