Electrocardiography (ECG)

AN ECG is a standard procedure done to look out for your heart…

What is an ECG?

Parkhill Medical Center offers an ECG procedure; a simple test that examines the electrical conduction of the heart by looking at the heart rhythm. Essentially, it assesses the health of your heart. 

How is the ECG procedure done? 

  • The patient lies down on the bed and ten small electrodes are placed in certain areas on the chest, arms and legs.
  • Wires are then attached to these electrodes and a ten second ECG is performed as the patient lies still.
  • The ECG is quick and painless and generally only takes a couple of minutes.

When will I receive my results? 

The technician who performs the procedure will arrange for a Cardiologist to review the results immediately.  A report will be forwarded to your referring Doctor. The report of ECG will usually be available within 24-48 hours.
