An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a diagnostic test that records the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time. It is a common procedure used to assess the heart's health and detect various cardiac conditions.

ECG is used to assess the heart's rhythm, rate, and electrical conduction. It helps in diagnosing various heart conditions, such as arrhythmias, heart attacks (myocardial infarctions), heart blocks, and other abnormalities in the heart's electrical system..

some key details about an ECG

Purpose :

ECG is used to assess the heart's rhythm, rate, and electrical conduction. It helps in diagnosing various heart conditions, such as arrhythmias, heart attacks (myocardial infarctions), heart blocks, and other abnormalities in the heart's electrical system.

Procedure :

During an ECG, the patient lies down while small electrode patches are placed on the chest, arms, and legs. These electrodes are connected to a machine that records the electrical signals produced by the heart.
