New EKG Machine At The Clinic at Mercury Courts

The Clinic at Mercury Courts has a new EKG machine! We’re really excited to provide this service for our patients and community. An EKG (Electrocardiogram  [ih-lek-troh-kahr-dee-uh-gram]) is a simple test to see how well your heart is doing. 

Some chronic illnesses like hypertension (high blood pressure) and diabetes put a person at risk for heart problems like heart attack and stroke. An EKG can help see if you are at risk. Also, if you’ve ever been diagnosed with coronary artery disease, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, had a heart attack, or you know that your heart has already had some problems, it is important that you get an EKG. 

Our hope is that you’ll come in so that we can get a baseline EKG on you to keep in your chart. Getting a baseline EKG allows us to look at your heart on a normal day so that if we are ever concerned about your heart in the future we have a good place to start.

So, if you have any of these medical conditions or have never had an EKG done, schedule an appointment today!
