An electrocardiogram is a simple and painless test that measures your heart’s electrical activity. It is  also known as an ECG or EKG. Every heartbeat is triggered by an electrical signal that starts from the top of your heart and travels to the bottom. Some heart problems often affect the electrical activity of your heart.

Your doctor may recommend an EKG if you are experiencing some symptoms or signs that may suggest a heart problem, that include:

  • pain in your chest
  • feeling tired or weak
  • trouble with breathing
  • pounding  or fluttering of your heart
  • detection of some unusual sounds when your doctor listens your heart

An electrocardiogram is a quick, painless and harmless test. After you change, a technician will attach 12 to 15 soft electrodes with a gel to your chest, arms and legs.  These electrodes are attached to electrical wires, which are then attached to the EKG machine.

During the very own test, you will be asked to lie still on a table while the machine records your hearts electrical activity and places the information on the graph. You need to make sure to lie as still as you can and breathe normally. You should not talk during the test.

After the procedure  the electrodes are removed. The  procedure takes about  10 to 15 minutes.

There are few risks related to EKG. Not so often, people may experience a skin rash where the electrodes were placed, but this will usually go away without any treatment involved.

An EKG, monitors the electrical activity of the heart and it doesn’t emit any electricity and is completely safe.

If the EKG shows normal results, your doctor will likely go over them with you and will immediately contact you, if your EKG shows signs of serious health problems.

Your doctor will use the results from your EKG to determine if any treatment can improve your heart’s condition.
