In brief: A lot!

For a cardiologist, an EKG can give information about the rate, the rhythm, whether there are signs of a congenital abnormality, signs of a heart attach or blocked artery, the thickness of the heart muscle, previous heart attack, and more.
In experienced hands, an EKG can tell an incredible amount of information.

In brief: Sure

An ekg examines several important aspects of the hearts function by recording electrical activity of the heart.
An ECG will show the heart rate, the heart's rhythm, the size and position of the heart chambers, signs of damage such as heart attack or valve disease, and the effects of medications or devices, like pacemakers. It is not perfect, but it yields a lot of information with no risk.
