Know the Basics

  • An Electrocardiogram abbreviated as ECG is a test which measures any abnormality or problems in the electrical activity of your heartbeat.
  • With each heartbeat, an electrical impulse (or "wave") travels through your heart, which causes the muscle to squeeze and pump blood from the heart.

Normal ECG

Normal ECG results show:

  • Heart rate of 60 to 100 beats per minute
  • Heart rhythm which is consistent and even

Abnormal ECG

Abnormal ECG results might be a sign of following heart disorders:

  • Any damage or change in the heart muscle
  • Changes in the amount of the electrolytes like potassium and calcium in the blood
  • Enlargement of the heart
  • Past or current heart attack
  • Poor or low blood supply to the heart arteries
  • Abnormal heart rhythms

Why Get an Electrocardiogram or an ECG Test Done?

  • To detect the cause of your unexplained chest pain
  • To find the cause of symptoms of heart diseases
  • To detect heart rate and find out if walls of heart chambers are too thick
  • For early detection of heart diseases

Does an Electrocardiogram Test Hurt?

Is an ECG Harmful?
