ECG (Heart Test)

What is the ECG?

The Electrocardiograph (ECG) is a medical device capable of recording the electrical activity of the heart from electrodes placed on the skin in specific locations.

What is the ECG used for in medicine today?

The ECG today is used to monitor the electrical workings of the heart. Doctors use this information to discover such things as heart rate, arrhythmias, myocardial infarctions, atrial enlargements, ventricular hypertrophies, and bundle branch blocks.

Our practice nurses are trained and experienced in taking ECGs for our patients using our modern ECG machine at the practice.
