What is an ECG?

An electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG) is a graphical record of the electrical activity of the heart. We utilize a 12-channel ECG machine from Schiller to provide you a graphical record.




What are its applications?

ECG is used in the investigation of various heart diseases, such as to detect arrhythmias, heart defects, valvular diseases, coronary artery disease and even heart attacks. A routine health check up may also include a ECG.

Do I need to prepare for the test?

Please carry any previous ECG reports and any other relevant medical records with you. No special preparations are necessary to take the test.

How is it performed?

It is a painless and non-invasive investigation. You will be asked to change into a gown and lie down on a bed in the ECG room. The technician will then place a small electrode on each of your arms and legs and across six areas on your chest. As you lie still on the bed for a few minutes, the machine will acquire the readings and print a graph.

Who will provide a report?

Only a trained and qualified cardiologist will interpret your records. If any previous reports or recordings are available, he will provide a comparison between them.

When will I get the reports?

We aim to deliver your reports on the same day or one day after the test. In cases of emergency, we will strive to provide the report as soon as possible.
