Clinical Cardiographic Technician
Cardiographic technicians are trained to perform non-invasive procedures related to cardiography. They infer rhythm and 12-lead electrocardiograms, and also carry out a range of EKG linked diagnostic testing. This is done under the direction of a doctor or nurse. The clinical cardiographic technician training is also useful for direct patient care providers such as nurses and medical office assistants, who can augment their employability in cardiology related health care centers and clinics by gaining essential requisite skills.
This program provides advanced training apart from the regular duties that an EKG technician carries out. These advanced skills include Holter monitoring and stress testing through specially designed equipment for this purpose.
