What is Electrocardiogram (ECG)?

ECG (Electrocardiogram) is a diagnostic test that records the electrical activity of the heart. It is a non-invasive procedure that involves placing small electrodes on the skin of the chest, arms, and legs, which detect and transmit the electrical signals generated by the heart. These signals are then recorded and displayed on a graph, which shows the electrical activity of the heart as a series of waves.

Why is ECG done?

The ECG is a valuable tool in diagnosing various heart conditions, such as arrhythmias, heart attacks, and other abnormalities. It can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of certain medications and treatments for heart disease. The test is painless and typically takes only a few minutes to complete.
