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.
