In brief: Primary yardstick

This is the starting place.
There are more definitive metrics such as echo-cardiogram;however let's do the basics first.

In brief: Ecg

The ECG is diagnostic for cardiac rhythm, it is indicative of other things.
After history and physical exam it is one of the first basic tests we use. Other tests are more informative for things other than rhythm.

In brief: It can't

It can give us valuable clues but if it did everything there would be no other tests.
