Assessing the Rhythm of the Heart

An EKG is a recording of the electrical activity of the heart muscle. In this painless test, electrodes are placed on the chest and limbs to record the heart beat for a few seconds. It can help to assess the heart’s rhythm, providing valuable information about the size and thickness of the heart chambers. It also detects problems with the way the impulse is conducted through the heart.

Ten sticky patches are placed across the chest, arms and legs. The patches are connected to the EKG Machine, providing a picture of the heart’s electrical activity. It’s painless, easy and very helpful in determining the health of the heart.
