- What is an ECG?
- What does an ECG show?
- When should you have an ECG?
An electrocardiogram (ECG) registers the electrical activity of your heart.
An electrocardiogram can show if there were any previous heart attacks or an imminent one and if there is an irregular heartbeat.
If you have had any episodes of chest pain, then you should have an Electrocardiogram (ECG in short) to make sure that there are no blocked arteries or coronary artery disease.
ARE ELECTROCARDIOGRAM and ECHOCARDIGRAM THE SAME?
No, they are not. An Electrocardiogram records the electrical activity of your heart. The Echocardiogram, instead, records the heart structure, the muscles and the valves.
An ECG can detect indirectly if there have been any blocked arteries in the past and if there was a previous heart attack.
How is an electrocardiogram carried out?
The test involves putting some electrodes on your chest, arms and legs.
You should have an ECG every time you develop any chest pain, shortness of breath, palpitations or you feel dizzy or you have had a collapse.
Yes, and this is often a very recommendable practice.
During the Exercise Stress Test, the ECG measures the electrical activity of your heart. A Cardiologist can detect any electrical changes in your heart’s activity when you walk on a treadmill.
An Electrocardiogram can detect heart rhythm abnormalities. Therefore, it is also used during the stress echocardiogram in order to make sure that there are no blocked arteries.
As an alternative, you can have a 24-hour Holter monitor. This is able to record the electrical activity of your heart for 24 hours.
