Electrokardiogram or EKG is an electrical activity test generated by the heart that can be measured by an array of electrodes placed on the body surface. The different waves that comprise the EKG represent the sequence of depolarization and repolarization of the atria and ventricles of the heart. An EKG is used to measure the size and position of the heart chambers, how fast your heart is beating and whether it is functioning normal, any damage that has been caused to the heart, the effects of devices and drugs used to control the heart such as a pacemaker. The blood analysis is a sample of blood, which will be taken for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes. This is a Laboratory examination of the physical and chemical properties and components within the blood sample. Analysis includes number of red and white blood cells (erythrocytes and leukocytes); red cell volume, sedimentation rate, and hemoglobin concentration; cell shape and structure; hemoglobin and other protein structure; enzyme activity; and chemistry. These tests detect infections, diseases or abnormalities within the body.
How it works
An EKG and blood work will be ordered and completed by the patient prior to the initial consultation with our physican and the meetings with the nutritionist and personal trainer. The results of the blood analysis and EKG will then be given to our physician to review and an appointment will be made to discuss the results with the patient. The EKG and Blood work will tell the Doctor what kind of physical health the patient is in prior to lifestyle and diet modifications. This will enable the Doctor, Nutritionist and Personal Trainer to customize and modify the program to meet the health concerns or issues specific to the Patient`s needs.
