An ECG test is a painless and simple medical test used for diagnosing heart problems by measuring the electrical signals generated by your heart.

The machine recording the individual’s ECG is known as an electrocardiograph.

This electrocardiogram records the electrical activity of the heart muscle and then displays the data as a trace on paper or screen. The healthcare practitioner then interprets this received data.

Your doctor can recommend an ECG test if you suffer from high blood pressure or experience any heart issues. These heart issues can be heavy or irregular heartbeats, shortness of breath or chest pain. An ECG is recommended in the following situations:
  1. For diagnosing if a person has suffered from a heart attack or to discover any previous heart attack evidence
  2. To determine the position and size of the chambers of the heart
  3. For examining the treatment for coronary heart disease.
  4. For determining irregular heartbeat, also known as arrhythmia
  5. For diagnosing poor blood flow to the heart muscle
  6. Evaluating specific heart abnormalities like an enlarged heart

You can need an ECG test if you show the following symptoms:
  1. Rapid heartbeat
  2. Chest pain
  3. Dizziness
  4. Shortness of Breath
  5. Fatigue
  6. Have a family history of heart disease
  1. Avoid drinking cold water before an ECG test as it can cause false results
  2. Avoid consuming caffeinated food or drinks before the test as this can affect the heart’s rhythm
  3. Your doctor might ask you to avoid some medications such as beta-blockers that might interfere with the results.
  4. Avoid greasy and fatty food, skin creams and lotions as they interfere with the electrode skin contact
  5. Remove any metallic objects like Jewellery
There are usually no risks associated with the test, and the procedure is safe and painless. The electrodes in your body do not emit any electricity and capture only the electrical activity inside your heart.
ECGs from healthy hearts display a characteristic shape, and any irregularity in the heart rhythm or damage to the heart muscle changes the electrical activity of the heart, changing the shape of the ECG. The result of the ECG test will determine the type of treatment you need.
