What is ECG and
How Does it Help Detect Heart Problems

Understand your heart rhythms in the most accurate manner

With lifestyles getting hectic and stress levels increasing by the day, it is getting even more important to take care of your heart and maintain its health for long term benefits. Medical science has advanced immensely and has helped doctors over the world to diagnose heart problems using ECG or an electrocardiogram. The ECG helps to measure the electrical activity of the heart and it points towards various issues that can be affecting the body with the main blood pump.

How does the heart function normally?

ECG of heart rate
Electrocardiogram or ECG measures heart rate to detect any potential heart problems

The heart has a regular rhythm in which it pumps blood all through the body. It conducts this activity by contracting one part of itself to let blood force out and relaxing another area to let the blood flow in. The rhythm is kept constant using a natural pacemaker which is also known as sinoatrial node.

This node is known to send out electrical impulses which is when the heart beats normally. These electrical signals can be measured and easily tracked using technology, which allows doctors to follow the rhythm of the heart and understand if there are any problems.

How does the ECG test help?

When you go for an ECG test, the impulses of the heart are recorded and printed on a piece of paper. This is called an electrocardiogram and it records the beating rhythm of the heart and with the process of beating, doctors can understand if there are any underlying problems in the heart. ECG is one of the most important and easily available tools to diagnose heart problems. It accurately measures the heart rate, promptness of heart beats and the size and position of chambers in the heart. With the readings of the ECG, doctors can immediately understand the presence of any damage to the heart and with the results, doctors can regulate the heart using pacemakers and medications as well.

Advantages of an ECG test

Check your heart regularly
Regular heart checks can help you keeping your heart healthy by detecting and preventing potential problems.

This test has various advantages for the patient as well as the doctors and hospitals. It is a painless test that is non-invasive, safe and inexpensive as well. The test is easy to perform so doctors can use the test to effectively determine heart problems without any hassles.

The machines are also easily available in the market and they are available in all kinds of medical facilities. You need not visit a major hospital to get these tests done. You can get it from any small medical centre and private physicians as well.

After an ECG

While an ECG test can be accurate and precise, if you have continuous problems of the heart, and it does not show in an ECG, you might get an advanced test done after the right recommendation of your cardiologist. ECG is an initial diagnostic test that must be considered as the first step of diagnosis. If symptoms and problems persist, you must always get further tests done.

An ECG is one of the most effective tools to detect heart problems and helps doctors understand the heart rhythms in the most accurate manner.
