Electrocardiogram

Electrocardiogram at Yorkshire Clinic

What is an Electrocardiogram (ECG)?

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a simple, useful and fast test to evaluate your heart. It uses sensors to measure the electrical activity of your heart each time it beats and this is recorded by an ECG machine. A doctor can interpret the graphic recording and will notify you if it is unusual.

An ECG is requested by a doctor if you’re experiencing symptoms that may suggest you have a heart problem. Symptoms may include chest pain, severe tiredness, shortness of breath, pounding, racing, or fluttering of your heart, feeling of uneven heart beating or unusual sounds when your doctor listens to your heart.

Your electrocardiogram can help your doctor to identify if you have a heart problem, including:

  • an irregular heartbeat
  • having or have had a heart attack
  • heart defects
  • heart valve problems
  • blocked arteries or coronary artery disease
