What To Expect After an Electrocardiogram

After an electrocardiogram (EKG), the nurse or technician will remove the electrodes (soft patches) from your skin. You may develop a rash or redness where the EKG patches were attached. This mild rash often goes away without treatment.

You usually can go back to your normal daily routine after an EKG.
