How is an Electrocardiogram carried out?

The test involves placing some electrodes on your chest, arms and legs. They will record the electrical activity generated by the sinus node, which is where the electrical impulse is formed, and its transmission to the different areas of the heart.

Can a Cardiologist combine ECG with other cardiac tests?

Yes, and this is necessary when I want to assess the heart under stress.

  • During the exercise tolerance test and the stress echocardiogram, the ECG records the electrical activity of your heart under stress. I monitor any changes in your heart electrical activity when you walk on a treadmill and indirectly I am able to confirm or rule out if a blocked artery is causing a reduction of blood flow to your heart, potentially leading to a heart attack in the future.
  • An Electrocardiogram can detect heart rhythm abnormalities underlying the palpitations. As these symptoms can be fluctuating during the day, we need an ECG trace at the exact moment when you experience them. Therefore a 24 h up to 7 or 14 days holter monitor, which are continuous ECGs monitoring, can capture and record the ECG exactly when you are experiencing palpitations.
Are Electrocardiogram and Echocardiogram the same?

No, they are not. An Electrocardiogram records the electrical activity of your heart. The Echocardiogram, instead, visualises the heart structure, which is made up of muscle, valves, chambers.
