The rest electrocardiogram is a simple test. It does not require any particular preparation, it is non-invasive, painless and risk-free (it doesn’t have contra-indications, contrary to the stress electrocardiogram test that is not recommended for people who suffer of cardiac failures). 10 electrodes are placed on the patient's limbs and on the surface of the chest. The overall magnitude of the heart's electrical potential is then measured from twelve different angles ("leads") and is recorded over a period of time (usually ten seconds).
The overall time required by this test is a few minutes.
The medical report includes:
It is the test where the electric variations that happen during the cardiac activity are evaluated. It is required to determine if the heart is suffering and if the cardiac rhythm is regular or not.
The report identifies:
Sometimes the basal electrocardiogram is not sufficient enough to formulate a diagnosis of a heart disease. Symptoms may not be present or visible during the electrocardiogram to confirm or exclude a diagnosis of a cardiac pathology.
Vice versa, in the absence of a symptom, a negative registration can highlight a situation of false normality even in the presence of cardiopathy. The particular forms (morphologies) of the electric stimulus recorded (electrocardiographic track) permit to determine with precision the type of rhythm of the heart at that moment, the modality of propagation of the stimulus that, along the conduction plot, it branches off from the base to the cliff of the heart.
The electrocardiograph is a device used to analyze, diagnose and monitor the cardiac function of patients. ECG is the process of recording the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time using electrodes placed on the skin. It provides information on the cardiac rhythm and evaluates indirectly the dimensions of the cardiac chambers. It is an important test to determine potential pathologies of an ischemic nature (a restriction in blood supply to tissues) of the heart.
Obviously, the ECG at rest reflects the cardiac situation during the test only, consequently the diagnosis may not include cardiac pathologies that may appear at different times of the day/night. In some situations, it is recommended to use a dynamic electrocardiogram, known also as an ECG Holter; the dynamic electrocardiogram is a prolonged ECG recording.
