Course Description

The EKG Technician Profession

EKG technicians are in demand! EKG technicians work in physicians offices, hospitals, clinics, and other healthcare facilities and organizations. EKG technicians also work for insurance companies to provide data for health and life insurance policies. Similar to other growing healthcare professions, the demand for EKG technicians is expected to continue to grow substantially. Approximately 25% more EKG technician jobs will be available by the year 2018.

Program Objectives

This EKG Technician program prepares students to function as EKG technicians. This course covers the following key areas and topics:

Detailed anatomy and physiology of the heart

Medical disease processes and terminology

Medical ethics and legal aspects of patient contact

Electrocardiography and echocardiography

An introduction to the components, function, and proper use of the EKG machine

The normal anatomy of the chest wall for proper lead placement

12-lead placement and other practices

Job Outlook

The job outlook for EKG techs looks excellent, as career opportunities for cardiovascular technicians and technologists are projected to grow 29% from 2010-2020. This is significantly faster than the average job growth for other occupations. As the baby boomer population ages, the need for EKG technicians will continue to grow, and as medical imaging technology advances, hospitals and labs will replace more currently invasive procedures with less invasive, more affordable imaging options.

Employment opportunities for EKG techs are expected to grow more rapidly in private diagnostic laboratories and doctors offices, although hospitals will still employ the majority cardiovascular technicians.
