A signal-averaged electrocardiography (SAECG) test is used to determine the "irritability" of your heart at rest to indicate risk for cardiac arrhythmias (irregular heartbeat). Please allow one hour for this test.
Electrodes will be placed on your chest, arms, and back after the various electrodes sites have been prepped. Some areas may need to be shaved on male patients. These electrodes are then connected to the signal average machine. At this time you will be asked to lie down on the bed and be very still. You may have to remain in this position for 10 to 30 minutes. When all the information needed has been collected, the wires and electrodes will be removed. You will then be free to go.
A final report will be sent to your doctor within a few days.
We are dedicated to making your testing experience a pleasant one. For more information, please call us at 765-453-8333.
