ECG

Facility of electrocardiogram in Aditya Hospital records the electrical signals in your heart. It's a common test used to detect heart problems and monitor the heart's status in many situations. Electrocardiograms — also called ECGs or EKGs.It is basically painless test with quick results. During an ECG, sensors (electrodes) that can detect the electrical activity of your heart are attached to your chest and sometimes your limbs.  
   
There are a number of different types of ECG :  
   

Standard ECG :

 
   
It only takes about five minutes to have a standard, resting ECG. Aditya Hospital nurses, technician or doctor will ask you to take off your clothing above your waist and lie on a bed or couch. They will stick some patches called electrodes onto your arms, legs and chest. Whoever is doing your ECG will then attach the electrodes with wires to a recording machine. When your heart beats, it produces electrical signals and these are picked up by the electrodes and transmitted to the recording machine. The machine will print a record of your heartbeat onto a paper strip or store the data on a computer.  
   

Exercise ECG :

 
   
An exercise ECG usually takes about 20 minutes. Electrodes will be attached to you from the recording machine in the same way as in a standard ECG. You’ll then be asked to start walking on a treadmill or cycle on an exercise bike at a gentle, slow pace. Your ECG will be monitored every few minutes while you’re exercising, along with your blood pressure and heart rate.  
   

24-hour ECG :

 
   
For this test, you’ll wear a small, portable recorder that’s attached to a belt you wear around your waist. You’ll have up to six small patches (electrodes) stuck onto your chest and these connect to the recorder with wires.  
   

Cardiac event recorders :

 
   
A portable cardiac event recorder is a small electrical device that you carry with you all the time. When you have symptoms, such as palpitations, you put it on your chest and switch it on to record your ECG.
