Post EKG Ordered

My doctor has ordered an EKG and I have never had one before. Could someone walk me through this? I remember my Mother having one and she had to lay naked from the waist up on a table while having the procedure. I swear I will just die if I have to do this - is it possible to have gown or sheet over ones self while this test is preformed?

Hello,i recently had 1 done in the er at hospital.I did not have to lay naked,As far as the ekg it is really not a big deal.Here is some info for you that will help you understand what a ekg is.An electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) is a recording of the heart's electrical activity as a graph or series of wave lines on a moving strip of paper or video monitor. What is being measured is the period of time it takes for an electrical wave to traverse different areas of the heart.I hope this helps you
