Chinook ambulance crew to offer ECG baseline testing at upcoming Health Fair
September 5, 2018
The Chinook ambulance crew, in conjunction with the Sweet Medical Center, will be offering baseline heart testing during the health fair at the Sugarbeet Festival on Friday, September 7. Ambulance crew members will use 12-lead heart monitors from the Blaine I ambulances to perform the ECG tests. A completed baseline ECG report for each person tested will be sent to their primary medical provider and Northern Montana Hospital. Should a cardiac event occur in the future, the baseline reports can be used by medical personnel to assess the extent of damage to an individual’s heart.
