A sleep study is a noninvasive test that determines if you have a sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea.
An EKG is a simple test that assesses the electrical activity of your heart. Your specialist may recommend an EKG if you’re experiencing chest pain, shortness of breath, or have a history of a heart attack.
A Holter monitor is a device that also measures electrical activity in your heart, but the measurement is taken over a longer period of time. Your specialist at Ross Medical Group provides you with the Holter monitor, and you wear it while doing your everyday activities.
