NHA Certified EKG Technician (CET) Exam Guide
EKG rhythms provide important data for the diagnosis of heart conditions. As a Certified EKG Technician (CET), you’ll have the credentials nearly all healthcare employers require to perform the critical tasks of administering EKGs, as well as Holter monitoring and stress testing. These tests can be performed during physical exams, when cardiovascular problems are suspected, or in preparation for surgery. As an EKG Technician you may perform some or all of the following tasks:
– Set up and administer EKGs (electrocardiograms) and stress tests
– Prepare patients for Holter or ambulatory monitoring
– Edit and deliver final test results to physicians for analysis
– Schedule appointments
– Transcribe physicians’ interpretations
