I went in to the emergency room because I was in lots of pain. They found out it was a kidney stone(s) and released me with instructions and medication. But when I got back home, I couldn't get the little sticky EKG or monitoring tabs off. There are about 9 of them stuck to the hair of my chest. Heard of how to get this off from other people?


You can use normal saline to remove the sticky tab.

Also usually in practice we shave the hairs before doing the EKG.

So if you can shave the chest it may be helpful.

Also medical spirit can also be used to clean the area.You can purchase it from a pharmacy.

I hope this helps
