Electrocardiogram, widely known as ECG or EKG which is a painless diagnostic test that examines electrical activities of the heart. As heart issues affect the electrical activity of the heart, an ECG can help the doctors determine if a person has had a heart damage, heart attack and heart failure.

What is an ECG Test?

ECG Test is a simple test where temporary electrodes are used to monitor or track your heart’s electrical activity to help in the diagnosis process. These electrical activities are translated in the wave pattern which then your healthcare provider examines. This test is hassle-free, and typically, this test is done while you are laying down.

What are the types of ECG tests?

An ECG mainly monitors the electrical activity of your heart for a very limited time, therefore, it may not track down the abnormality that occurs once in a while. There are many types of ECG tests, such as:

  • Holter monitor: Holter monitor is also known as ambulatory EKG or ECG monitor that records your heart activity for about 24 to 48 hours, or even up to two weeks. The electrodes attached to your heart record the activities on a portable monitor which is a battery operated monitor and you can carry it in your pocket as well.
  • Event monitor: You may require an event monitor if the symptoms do not appear very often. This monitor is quite similar to the holter monitor, but it records the electrical activities only when the symptoms appear. Some event recorder devices automatically capture the electrical activities when heart arrhythmia occurs, while some devices may be required to turn on when you feel the symptoms.
  • Loop recorder: A loop recorder is a device that is inserted in the body, beneath the skin of your chest. This device continuously records the electrical activities of your heart, which helps to determine the causes of palpitation and fainting.
  • Stress test: Some heart issues only appear while you are exercising. This type of ECG will be done while you are exercising. This is why it is called a stress test. Your doctor may perform a stress test while you are on a treadmill or stationary bicycle.

When should you go for an ECG?

Your healthcare provider may suggest you an ECG test for many reasons, such as:

  • To diagnose a heart attack, heart damage and heart failure
  • To detect heart abnormalities including heart chamber enlargement and abnormal electrical conduction
  • To examine whether you have arrhythmia
  • To detect if you have coronary artery disease
  • To check if you are fit enough for a surgery

Your doctor may run an ECG to check to your heart activity:

  • If you have had a heart attack
  • If you have gotten a pacemaker
  • If you have heart disease and started your medication

Apart from these cases, usually doctors refer to an ECG if you are experiencing symptoms of a heart disease. Symptoms that may indicate a heart disease include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Severe pain in the chest
  • Racing of your heart
  • Uneven heartbeat
  • Excessive tiredness

If you have a family history of heart disease, then an ECG will help to determine your possibilities of developing a heart disease. Heart issues may occur at any age, this is why it is important to be aware of the symptoms that may indicate a heart disease. If you experience any symptoms related to heart disease then consult with your doctor as soon as possible.

What are the risks associated with an ECG?

There are a few, to no, risks involved in an ECG. However, some people might see small skin rashes where the electrodes were placed. Also, there is a risk of heart attack in people who are undergoing a stress test, but it is mainly because of the exercise, not the echocardiogram.

With Holter monitoring, some people may feel itchiness or rashes on the area where the electrodes were placed. This can happen if they were worn for several days in a row. Also, ECG is absolutely safe during pregnancy.

How to get ready for an ECG test?

You need to be careful about a few things before going for the test, such as:

  • Make sure you are not wearing any metal objects including jewelry
  • It will be better if you shave your chest hair before the test
  • Avoid drinking cold water just before the test
  • Completely avoid exercising or activities that can increase the heart rate before the test

Exercising or such activities can increase the heart rate that might affect the test results. And consuming cold water right before the test can alter the electrical pattern. Removing metallic objects and shaving chest hair helps in attaching the electrodes more safely.

Is fasting required for the test?

No, you are not required to fast for this test.

What happens during the test?

Here are a few steps that you can experience during the test:

  • Firstly, a medical expert will attach 10 soft electrodes with a gel to your chest, arms or legs. The electrodes are about the size of a quarter.
  • If the areas where the electrodes will be placed are not shaved already, then the technician may clean the area.
  • During the whole process, make sure to breathe normally.
  • Avoid talking during the test.
  • Then the machine will record the electrical waves of your heart.
  • After the test, the electrodes will be removed.

The whole procedure may take up to 10 minutes. After the test, you can do your regular activities.

What is the ECG Test Price?

The ECG Test Price may vary depending on the laboratory you are preferring.

How to interpret the results?

If your test results are abnormal and you’re also having symptoms of heart problems, then your doctor might suggest you a few additional tests to determine your conditions. An ecg test can detect heart, coronary heart disease, heart defects, and electrolytes problems. If the doctors detect any abnormalities during the test then additional tests are required for a diagnosis.
