ECG

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a simple test that can be used to check your heart's rhythm and electrical activity.

Sensors attached to the skin are used to detect the electrical signals produced by your heart each time it beats.

These signals are recorded by a machine and are looked at by a doctor to see if they're unusual.

An ECG may be requested by a heart specialist (cardiologist) or any doctor who thinks you might have a problem with your heart, including your GP.

The test can be carried out by a specially trained healthcare professional at a hospital, a clinic or at your GP surgery.

An ECG can help detect:

  • Arrhythmias – where the heart beats too slowly, too quickly, or irregularly
  • Coronary Heart Disease – where the heart's blood supply is blocked or interrupted by a build-up of fatty substances
  • Heart Attacks – where the supply of blood to the heart is suddenly blocked
  • Cardiomyopathy – where the heart walls become thickened or enlarged

It is safe during pregnancy.

Prior appointment is necessary before coming for 2D and color Doppler Echocardiography.

Patient should get previous reports like X-Ray, ECG when coming for 2D Echo.

No preparation is needed for 2D Echo.
