If you are experiencing symptoms of a heart-related problem, an electrocardiogram may be used to evaluate the health of your heart.
Electrocardiograms, commonly known as EKGs, are a type of testing used to evaluate the heart’s electrical activity using electrodes that are applied to a patient’s body. EKGs are often employed to assess the cause of heart-related symptoms or unexplained chest pain or pressure.
EKGs record electric activity, and can provide important information about a patient’s heart, including how fast it is beating, if the heartbeat rhythm is steady or irregular, and the strength and timing of the electrical signals.
