Electrocardiograms (ECG/EKG) at EHHOP


Note: if you press the EKG button multiple times (e.g. if you're unhappy with the data quality, or if the automated interpretation seems incorrect to you), be aware that you'll create multiple entries in the chart and all the EKGs will be viewable. It's best to wait and watch the screen until the data looks clean, then only press EKG once; the automated interpretation will be corrected when someone reviews it within a few days.

**If EKG does NOT UPLOAD to chart, take a photo of the paper EKG and upload to media tab

**Extra EKG Stickers can be found in clinic: first door on the left when you walk into clinic, look in the cabinets for a box of stickers.

Forget your lead placement? Take a peek at the image below, or use the guide on the machine's lead box. It can help to remember "white on right, smoke (black) over fire (red)."
