An electrocardiogram test, or better known as an EKG test, is an effective test that can help identify problems related to the electrical activity of the heart.
The EKG shows the heart's electrical work in the form of a linear trace on paper. The vibrations (drops and cracks) that are observed on tracing paper are called waves.
People can also opt to ECG patient simulator which is an essential tools that allow you to accurately test and verify the performance of your patient monitoring equipment and systems.
Why order an EKG test?
The electrocardiogram test is mainly used to:
• Check the electrical activity of the heart.
• Explain the unexpected cause of chest pain. This could be due to a heart attack, inflammation of the sac around the heart, or blockage in an artery.
• Find the causes of heart disease symptoms.
• Check if the heart wall is too thick.
• Learn the effectiveness of the drugs prescribed for heart disease and see if they cause side effects.
• Check the functionality of implanted mechanical devices, such as B. Pacemaker etc.
• Check heart health against a background of chronic disease or infection in the body.
EKG results are normal – the heart beats rhythmically, usually between 60 and 100 beats per minute.
An abnormal ECG result – too slow (i.e. less than 60 beats per second) or too fast (i.e. more than 100 beats per second) and wrong rhythm.
