Test Your Heart

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. for both men and women, taking about 600,000 lives each year. That is a scary statistic.

So what can we do about it? Eat a heart-healthy diet; don’t smoke or use tobacco; exercise for 30 minutes most days of the week; maintain a healthy weight; get enough sleep ; and get regular health screenings, like an electrocardiogram. Let’s start there.

Frist, what is an electrocardiogram?

An electrocardiogram (EKG) is a test that checks for problems with the electrical activity of your heart. About once a second, certain cells in your heart generate an electrical signal that runs from the top of the heart to the bottom. This electrical activity is translated into line tracings on a paper, illustrating the spikes and dips (waves) of heart activity.
