Medical technical assistants for function diagnostics perform tests with medical measuring devices according to doctors' orders. They primarily examine the function of the sensory organs, nervous system, musculature, heart, blood vessels and lungs. For example, they may examine the heart using a resting, ambulatory and stress electrocardiogram (ECG). They are responsible for the maintenance and inspection of the instruments and documenting and evaluating the results. For special examinations, they serve as doctor's assistants, for example for cardiac catheter examinations.
Medical technical assistants for functional diagnostics work primarily in hospitals, specialist doctor practices, medical laboratories and diagnostic centres.
