Key words: ECG heart problems

ECG

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a simple and non-invasive test that can be used to check your heart's rhythm and electrical activity. Sensors attached to the skin are used to detect the electrical signals produced by your heart each time it beats. These signals are recorded by a machine and are looked at by a doctor to see if they're unusual.

In our surgeries ECG is performed by our doctors using AsCard Grey 12 Channel Electrocardiograph v.07.204 - a comprehensively advanced electrocardiograph designated to high-volume purposes in ultraportable form.

Its main features are:

 

  • enhanced large LCD TFT 7″ colour touch screen with WYGA 800×480 resolution
  • internal memory of 1000 examinations and database of 1000 patients
  • EDM – archiving examinations for a specific period of time on a USB
  • presentation of analyses’ results and interpretation on a screen
  • manual and automatic mode
  • alphanumeric keyboard
  • preview on the screen of saved in the database examinations function
  • pacemaker detection
  • communication with PC (USB device)

ECG results should be seen by a heart specialist (Cardiologist) or an Internal Medicine doctor. The test can detect certain heart abnormalities, arrhythmias, impaired blood flow to the heart, congenital heart defects, or symptoms of a past or current heart attack.
