  Electrocardiogram  
     
 

An electrocardiogram is a noninvasive test that records the electrical activity of the heart. The electrical activity is related to the impulses that travel through the heart, that determines the rate and the rhythm. Electrodes are placed on the chest area, arms and legs. The test takes about 5-10 minutes.

This test will your doctor evaluate the following:

  • Is there decreased blood supply to the heart?
  • Has a heart attack has occurred?
  • What part of heart is damaged?
  • Are there any irregular heartbeats or rhythm?

In order to perform this test at our facility a Beaver Family Clinic health care provider must order the test.
