Pediatric Electrocardiogram (EKG) Testing in Brentwood, NY, Patchogue, NY, Lindenhurst, NY and Greater Long Island, New York Areas
The heart is one of the most important muscles in the human body. It is responsible for filtering and pumping blood throughout your entire frame. From the organs in your thoracic cavity to the furthest extremities of your body, you cannot function properly without a strong and healthy heart. At Pediatrics of Long Island, we are proud to offer pediatric cardiology services for families in Greater Brentwood, Lindenhurst and Patchogue as well as the surrounding areas. Whether your child has a diagnosed heart condition that requires monitoring, or you are concerned about the health of their heart, our pediatric cardiology clinics can provide the insight and care they need.
While many people may know the term EKG from watching medical dramas on television, some may not fully understand what an electrocardiogram does. An EKG is a visual representation of your heart’s function. A digital EKG will produce a recording of the electrical signals created by the heart as it pumps blood throughout your body. This allows doctors to understand and monitor heart rate and rhythm, as well as other important information. EKGs can be used to understand and diagnose heart attacks, arrhythmias, and other cardiac conditions.
At Pediatrics of Long Island, we offer exceptional EKG services that can help monitor the health of your child’s heart. An experienced doctor can study the waveform produced by our onsite EKG machines in order to determine whether your child’s heart is functioning normally. It is important to choose a doctor who specializes in the care of children because young hearts do function slightly differently than those of adults. For example, the baseline ventricular rate is typically faster in children. Our experienced pediatricians are trained in the unique needs of little hearts and can provide you with the information you need to care for your child now as well as throughout their development. We want to help parents set their child up for a long and healthy life, and we know that starts with ensuring they have a healthy heart at a young age, so it can be appropriately cared for.
