An electrocardiogram, also known as an ECG, is a noninvasive diagnostic test that detects electrical activity in the heart. It is usually part of a routine physical exam. An ECG produces a record of waves that relate to the electrical impulses that occur during each beat of a patient’s heart.
This test is performed by attaching electrical wires, called electrodes, to the arms, legs and chest. The ECG will begin recording your heart’s electrical activity, showing how quickly and regularly your heart beats, as well as any structural abnormalities in the chambers and thickness of the heart. Abnormal results from an ECG may indicate signs of a heart condition, which should be further investigated.
