Tests for Your Heart: How They Work, What They Mean

November 12, 2020

The average human heart beats about 100,000 times a day, pumping almost 2,000 gallons of blood through the body.

What makes it tick so precisely? An electrical system that creates impulses to control the heart rate (beats per minute) and heart rhythm (synchronizing the pumping action).

Here are some tests that help your doctor evaluate your heart:

  • EKG.
  • Holter monitor.
  • Chest X-ray.
  • Echocardiogram.
  • Blood test.
  • Stress test.
  • Coronary angiography.
  • Electrophysiology study.
