In brief: EKG
Is a useful test.
It depends what we order it for. All people with hypertension should have a baseline ekg, we like to compare an old ekg when pt gets another ekg when having angina. Ekg can detect heart attach changes (not all the time). So, it is important to have a doctor order , and interpret ekg on the right clinical scenario.
