What is an electrocardiogram (ecg) used for?

Check your heart

Electrocardiogram
An EKG (ECG) collects information about how the electrical impulse that maintains your heart rate is transmitted through your heart. It not only shows the rate of your hearbeat and its regularity or lack of, but can also give information about the size and strength of the chambers of your heart and sometimes about whether the heart muscle has been damaged, is receiving enough blood, etc.

Dr. Liviu Klein answered:

When is an electrocardiogram needed?

Symptoms

Open-uri20120703-7061-ri9t0h
One should get an ECG only when they have symptoms suggestive of heart problems: chest discomfort or pain, palpitations or shortness of breath. Otherwise, one can discover incidental findings that would lead to more (often inappropriate) tests.

How accurate is an electrocardiogram?

EKG

Electrocardiogram
Is a useful test. It depends what we order it for. All people with hypertension should have a baseline EKG, we like to compare an old EKg when pt gets another EKG when having angina. EKG can detect heart attach changes (not all the time). So, it is important to have a doctor order , and interpret EKG on the right clinical scenario.

Dr. James L. Chen answered:

When would I need an exercise electrocardiogram?

See cardiologist

Heart
typically an exercise EKG is used to evaluate the heart under stress. this would be done if there is a question whether you can handle a stressful event such as surgery. it also could be done if there is suspicion that you have arterial blockage of your heart. all of these are determined by a cardiologist.
