ECG

Electrocardiography is a commonly used, non invasive procedure for recording electrical changes in the heart. The ECG is a starting point for detecting many cardiac problems. It is routinely used in physical examinations to evaluate causes of symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath and palpitations.

During an ECG, 10 electrodes are applied to specific areas on the arms, legs and chest. The recording lasts for several beats of the heart and is printed on paper. All electrocardiograms are read by an Internist and the results are then sent out to the ordering doctor.   To have an ECG done, simply present to the B entrance with your requisition and register with the clerks at the outpatient registration desk. An appointment is not required as the Cardio Department perform ECG’s routinely   Monday to Friday from 0900 – 1200 and  1:00 to 3:00 pm.
