how is a ekg done

how is a ekg done ? What is an EKG? It is a device that records the electrical activity of the heart (the Rhythm of the heart, the frequency of heart beats, the rhythm of the pulse and the destruction of the reaction) through the electrodes affixed to the skin.

Electrocardiography (ECG) is a method of examination based on the printing of the heart and the contractions of the abdominal abdomen and the electrical activity that occurs during the transmission of the heart and the stimulation of the pain on milimetric paper . A picture of the electrical map of the heart. In addition, the ECG can be obtained with information about the shape of the heart. EKG device records are called electrocardiogram.

What is the EKG used for?

• Electrocardiography is one of the most important methods used to assess the function of the heart. Shows the form of contraction of the heart muscle directly.

• The EKG can be determined by the rhythm and conduction disorders of the heart.

• Coronary insufficiency or infarction can be diagnosed.

• Thickening of the heart walls and enlargement findings may be detected in the heart gaps.

• The functions of the electronic pacemaker can be evaluated.

• Effects of some heart medication, electrolyte imbalance (especially serum potassium deficiency or excess)

• The heart effects of non-cardiac diseases can be investigated.

The ECG is an average 5-10-minute review method.

How is the EKG test done?

The ECG device can be easily transported anywhere, so auditing is possible anywhere. The patient does not need to be prepared specifically for an EKG. It is not an annoying or painful procedure. The patient is on the back of the examination desk or in bed during the ECG extraction. The jewelry on the neck, arm and wrists of the patient must be removed. The patient's waist area, wrists and ankles must be opened. If the socks are removed or the wrists should be scraped out to be uncovered. Electrode discs are placed on the front side of the arms, legs and chest. It is possible to make the recording better between the electrodes with special ECG gel or alcoholic cotton skin. The patient should not move or speak during the shooting. The ECG is usually taken in 5-10 minutes. It's completely painless. Electrodes or transmitter gel can give a feeling of cold when used first. Where the electrodes are placed, redness or mild pain can be felt.

There is no risk of ECG extraction. This test is a completely safe test. The device is recording the electrical activity of the heart. No electrical warnings are received from the device to the patient.
