ELECTROCARDIOGRAMS (ECGs)

ELECTROCARDIOGRAMS

ECG's (electrocardiograms) are tracings of the electrical activity of the heart. They can be useful in diagnosing and monitoring certain cardiac conditions. The process involves some stickers being attached to the skin on your chest, arms and legs. The electrical activity of you heart is then recorded as you lie still for a few seconds. It is not a painful procedure and is performed by our nurse Emer.
