Ecg Interpretation Made Easy
Heart procedures: An ECG or ekg, electrocardiogram, measures the electrical activity of the heart. It can give an indication of abnormal heart rhythm, heart attacks or many other conditions. An angioplasty is when a small balloon and/or a stent is used to treat a blocked artery in the heart. Open heart surgery is used to describe surgery on the heart, typically for coronary artery bypass or valve related surgery. ...Read more
Electrocardiogram (ecg, ekg) is a print-out of the electrical forces detected by electrodes on the chest wall, as electricity travels through the heart with each heart beat. The electrodes are placed in different positions, and each position "sees" the electrical activity of the heart from its own vantage point. Abnormalities in signal detected at chest surface ...Read more

Can ECG and blood test find this problem (cardiomyopathy)? Made ECG 4 times and they listened with stethoscope. I have really unregular heartrhytm. Cause of anxiety? And can anxiety cause heartfail?
Takotsubo?: People who have had a tremendous emotional shock may suffer from a "stunning" of the heart muscle ("takotsubo") but the onset is spectacular and this is not mere anxiety causing heart failure. Many people have an uneven rhythm and this is little concern if the ekg rules out serious disease and there are five or fewer flipflops per minute. Caffeine can worsen this. What does your dr.
