“Every human heart beat is a universe of possibilities.”
The ECG is a simple test that records the electrical activities of the heart and translates this electrical activity into line tracings on paper, which the physicians interprets.
ECG is used to measure the heart’s electrical conduction system. It picks up electrical impulses from the heart and translates those into a waveform.
- The main purpose of an ECG is to find the cause of unexplained chest pain as well as any symptoms of heart disease.
- A number of electrodes are placed on the body surface, which create a trace defined the electrocardiogram – this is deciphered by a trained medical professional.
- The ECG procedure is completely painless, harmless and safe.
