What is an EKG Monitor Technician?
EKG monitor technicians are responsible for watching patients’ heart rates and reporting important changes to the nursing staff; they often use equipment that tracks several patients simultaneously. EKG monitor technicians may also perform electrocardiographs (EKGs), which read electrical impulses sent by the heart.

EKG monitor technicians work in many different settings, including but not limited to hospitals, clinics and outpatient centers.
