  1. Damage caused to heart vessels due to high blood pressure.

  2. Restriction in blood supply to the heart due to cholesterol blockage.

  3. Enlargement of heart

  4. Abnormal rhythms of heartbeats

 

Who requires ECG?

This test is required when you have any risk factor for cardiac diseases like chest pain, high blood pressure or much more. If you already have any heart disease and there are some symptoms like chest pain or palpitations, then you may require ECG.

This test is to examine any risk factor associated with your heart like an enlarged heart. If there are some symptoms like high BP and other symptoms like heavy heartbeats, an irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, chest pain symptoms and much more, and then you may need to get this test done.

In this test, a patient is asked to remove clothes covering his/her chest. Then the electrodes are stuck on the patient’s chest and he/she is made to lie down. The electrical activity is then recorded by these electrodes as they are connected to a computer. The computer interprets the information received by electrodes and displays the same in the form of a line graph. This graph is then printed on a strip of paper for further examination by the heart specialist.

The ECG checkup is conducted in three modes:

  1. Resting ECG – In this mode, the patient is made to lie down when the test is being performed.

  2. Exercise ECG – In this mode, the patient is made to walk or run on a treadmill, while the test is being conducted.

  3. 24 Hour ECG – In this mode of ECG Checkup, the small Electrocardiograph machine is being carried by the patient throughout the day. This records the activity of the heart throughout the day.
