An ECG displays the overall rhythm of the heart at that time along with any signs of weaknesses in different parts of the heart muscle.
It is useful in diagnosing common heart conditions and is an essential part of a cardiac assessment.
What does it entail?
Once you have scheduled the appointment you will be sent details on when and where it will take place. An ECG is a quick and painless test that takes approximately 20 minutes of your time.
On arrival at our test centre you will need to register (unless already registered). You will be shown into the ECG room and the Cardiac Nurse will take down your details and may want to measure your Blood Pressure.
You will then be asked to remove any clothing over your chest and electrodes connected to your chest.
The ECG will be acquired over a few minutes and forwarded electronically to the reporting Consultant Cardiologist who will issue a report. You can ask to have the print out of the ECG and report in due course either by email or post.
