A Heart to Heart Discussion About Men’s Weight Loss
Before you begin your diet, it is critical to ensure that your heart is healthy enough for products and programs. Any weight loss clinic or physician who does not order an electrocardiogram (EKG) prior to prescribing a weight loss program is putting you at risk. At Oklahoma Men’s Clinic we don’t just want to help you achieve your weight loss goals, we want to get you there safely and effectively.
Our weight loss clinic for men uses a state-of-the-art handheld EKG machine to evaluate your heart health in a way that’s fast and convenient.
What To Expect From An EKG At Our Weight Loss Clinic For Men
An EKG is an important part of the initial evaluation for new patients at our weight loss clinic for men.
During an EKG, small, sticky electrodes are applied to the chest, shoulders, and sides of the lower chest. Wires are used to connect these electrodes to an EKG machine. You will be asked to remain very still while our staff records the EKG readings. The electrical activity created by the patient’s heart is processed by the EKG machine and stored electronically for our Oklahoma Men’s Clinic Provider to evaluate. It only takes a few minutes to apply the EKG electrodes, and one minute to make the actual recording.
The EKG is extremely safe and there is no risk involved. In rare cases, some people may develop skin irritation from the electrode adhesive, but no serious allergic reactions have been reported.
The only preparation for an EKG to wear clothes that allow easy access to your chest. Thus, a shirt with buttons down the front or a t-shirt that is easy to remove. Prior to this test, your chest may be cleansed with alcohol wipes to ensure good electrical contact with the EKG electrode. For men who have a hair chest, small areas may have to be shaved to allow adequate skin contact with the electrode. This avoids interfering artifacts from being recorded on the EKG and produces a technically accurate study.
The EKG can provide important information about the patient’s heart rhythm, a previous heart attack, increased thickness of heart muscle, signs of decreased oxygen delivery to the heart, and problems with conduction of the electrical current from one portion of the heart to another. Oklahoma Men’s Clinic insists on an EKG so that we can prescribe the proper weight loss program which is medically safe for you.
