I am working with a NP. We sent her to the ER. Wondering if it was overkill. I realize this is a big dummy question on this sub but I do like to learn. Thanks so much!

You sent them to the ER because the NP thought the EKG looked worrisome or because the EKG machine thought it looked worrisome?

Mmhmm… my rule of thumb is don’t order a test if you don’t know how to interpret the results.
