Common reasons for ECG:
To investigate symptoms of chest pain / breathlessness
To look for heart rhythm disorder / conduction abnormality
To screen for evidence / suggestion of heart muscle disorder / cardiomyopathy
How is it done?
ECG is a routine investigation and is commonly performed for almost all patients presented with suspected heart disease. It is a simple painless bedside investigation performed using disposable gel-pad electrodes attached to the chest wall and to the limbs. A ECG machine is then attached to the electrodes and the electrical signals from the heart are then captured and presented on a piece of printed paper called an electrocardiogram.
