Electrocardiogram (Definition)

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

What does an EKG show?

What does an EKG show?

Electrical activity: Ekg is a graph of the electrical activity of the upper and lower chambers of the heart. Electricity travelling toward an ekg electrode records a positive deflection and away records a negative deflection . It offers a clue into various heart problems including heart attack, ischemia, heart rhythm disturbances, enlarged or abnormally thickened heart and electrolyte abnormalities to name a few. ...Read more

What does inversted t mean in the EKG and what causes it?

It depends: Inverted t wave means that part of the ekg complex is a negative deflection, going below the baseline. In some leads of the ekg it is normal to have an inverted t wave. If it is an abnormal t wave inversion, it may be due to electrolyte abnormalities, or may indicate a reduction in blood flow to that part of the heart (ischemia). Ask your doctor about your particular ekg. ...Read more
