Electrocardiogram (ECG)

An Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a non-invasive medical test that records the electrical activity of the heart. It helps diagnose cardiac conditions, such as arrhythmias, heart attacks, and heart disease, by providing a graphical representation of the heart’s rhythm and function.

The Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a fundamental diagnostic tool in cardiology, allowing healthcare professionals to assess the electrical activity of the heart. This non-invasive and painless test records the heart’s electrical impulses, translating them into a visual representation that helps diagnose and monitor various cardiac conditions.

During an ECG, electrodes are placed on specific areas of the chest, arms, and legs. These electrodes are connected to an ECG machine, which records the electrical signals produced by the heart as it contracts and relaxes. The resulting graph, known as an ECG tracing, displays a series of waves and intervals, each representing different aspects of cardiac activity.

ECGs serve several critical purposes:

  1. Diagnosis: They help identify abnormal heart rhythms (arrhythmias), ischemic heart disease, heart attacks (myocardial infarctions), and structural heart issues.
  2. Monitoring: ECGs are used to track the progress of heart conditions and assess the effectiveness of treatments.
  3. Screening: They are employed in routine medical check-ups and pre-operative assessments to detect underlying heart problems.
  4. Risk Assessment: ECGs play a role in evaluating an individual’s risk of heart disease, especially in those with risk factors like hypertension or diabetes.

The information derived from an ECG is invaluable in guiding clinical decisions, from determining the need for immediate intervention during a heart attack to fine-tuning medication regimens for arrhythmia management. Overall, the ECG remains an essential tool in the realm of cardiology, aiding in the early detection and effective management of heart-related conditions.
