is it the job of ekg technicians to interpret rhythm strips?
or is all they do, wire you up and take your electrocardiogram, and then the electrphysiologist or cardiologist interprets the rhythm ?

IN the UK they interpret them and write reports for the consultant - they also do echo, stress tests and a load of other tests.

In the UK the tech gets the recordings and the consultant does the interpretation. Techs also do jump-starts - for which I shall be eternally gratefull

No, their job is just to take the EKG. The cardiologist interprets it. However, if something looks very obviously wrong, they may recognize that and try to get the cardiologist or other physician to look at it immediately.
