What is ECG?

An electrocardiogram, also called an ECG or EKG, is a test that measures the electrical activity of your heart. It detects heart problems, such as a previous heart attack, angina (chest pain), or an irregular heartbeat.

An electrocardiogram is a simple and painless test that usually takes just a few minutes. You’ll lie on a table while sensors are attached to your chest. The sensors record your heart’s electrical activity and send it to a machine that displays the results on paper. An electrocardiogram is one of the best ways to diagnose many heart problems. It can often identify heart damage from a previous heart attack or other conditions, such as coronary artery disease (CAD) or arrhythmia.

Types of ECG or EKG

An electrocardiogram is a test that measures the electrical activity of your heart. It’s also called an ECG or EKG. A typical ECG tracing has five waves labeled P, QRS, and T. The P wave represents atrial depolarization, the QRS complex represents ventricular depolarization, and the T wave represents ventricular repolarization.
  1. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  2. Computerized tomography (CT)
  3. Electroencephalography (EEG)
  4. Nerve conduction studies/electromyography (NCS/EMG)
  5. Cerebrospinal fluid analysis (CSF)

These diagnostics tools allow the hospital’s neurologists to accurately diagnose conditions such as Alzheimer’s, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Parkinson’s, stroke, and more.

When an (ECG) Electrocardiogram is used

An electrocardiogram, or ECG, is a test that measures the electrical activity of your heart. An ECG can be used to determine if you have heart disease or are at risk for developing heart disease.

At Life Care Hospital, our experts use ECGs to help diagnose and treat heart conditions. We offer various cardiac services, from preventative care to complex cardiac surgery. Our goal is to provide our patients with the best possible care and treatment.

If you’re worried about your heart health or if you think you may have a heart condition, we encourage you to come in for an ECG. We’ll work with you to determine your case’s best course of action.
