What is an EKG?

An electrocardiogram (ECG), also known as EKG, is one of the most fundamental and simple procedures for ascertaining heart health. It is a simple, non-invasive procedure that checks your heart’s rhythm and electrical activity. An EKG helps detect any heart-related issues either prior or during their actual occurrence.

An EKG may be prescribed by your doctor for many reasons, including the following:


to evaluate heart-related symptoms like chest pain, tightness, pressure, and discomfort.


to recognize irregular heartbeat


to assess the general condition of the heart before surgery or after treatment


to monitor the performance of a pacemaker


to assess the efficacy of specific cardiac drugs


to record the heart's function at rest during a medical examination (this can be compared to future EKGs to see whether any changes have occurred)

Sometimes, it could be part of a regular medical examination.

Frequently Asked Questions

An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) measures the heart rate and rhythm. It is used to detect heart disease, heart attack, an enlarged heart, or abnormal heart rhythms that can lead to heart failure if left undetected.
ECGs and EKGs are one and the same. They are two different terms for the same procedure.
Electrodes(tiny plastic patches that adhere to the skin) are applied to specific locations on the chest, arms, and legs. These electrodes are attached using wires to the EKG device. Post the application of electrodes the EKG device is activated to record and measure the heart’s electrical activity. The procedure is non-invasive and painless. The EKG report is printed out by the machine for further analysis.
