What Is An ECG?

An ECG is a recording of your heart’s electrical activity, for evidence of heart rhythm disturbances or cardiac injury.

The procedure

You will be required to remove your top items of clothing; ladies can leave their bra on.

You will need to lie flat on your back with your arms down by your side for a brief time.

Ten small, adhesive dots will be placed across your chest and limbs, attached by small clips and wires to the ECG machine, and a recording will be taken.

The dots will be removed, and you may put your clothing back on.
