What is meaning by ECG?

What is meaning by ECG?

Electrocardiography/Full name

What should ECG read?

Normal range 120 – 200 ms (3 – 5 small squares on ECG paper). QRS duration (measured from first deflection of QRS complex to end of QRS complex at isoelectric line). Normal range up to 120 ms (3 small squares on ECG paper).

What is the expansion of ECG?

The full meaning of ECG is Electrocardiogram. It is a test that helps to check your heart’s functioning by testing the electrical activity. With every pulse of our heartbeat, an electric wave travels through our hearts. And because of this activity, the muscle of our heart squeezes and plums blood through the veins.

What is the process of ECG?

Electrodes (small, plastic patches that stick to the skin) are placed at certain spots on the chest, arms, and legs. The electrodes are connected to an ECG machine by lead wires. The electrical activity of the heart is then measured, interpreted, and printed out. No electricity is sent into the body.

What diseases can ECG detect?

An ECG can help detect:

  • arrhythmias – where the heart beats too slowly, too quickly, or irregularly.
  • coronary heart disease – where the heart’s blood supply is blocked or interrupted by a build-up of fatty substances.
  • heart attacks – where the supply of blood to the heart is suddenly blocked.

Is ECG and echo same?

Although it has a similar name, an echocardiogram is not the same as an electrocardiogram (ECG), which is a test used to check your heart’s rhythm and electrical activity.

What does ECG stand for in medical category?

Electrocardiography (ECG) a method of recording or graphic tracing the heart activity with the help of electrodes placed on the skin in order to determine its healthy functioning conditions.

How is the iso-electric line related to the ECG?

In relation to iso- electric line: Depression/Negative indicates ischemia Elevation/Positive indicates injury Orientation Positive in Leads I,II,aVF, V4 Negative in aVR Analyzing Rhythms Regularity Rate P waves PR interval QRS ECG Paper 2 large squares = 1 mV 5 large squares = 1 sec (1000msec)

What do you need to know about the ECG curve?

Figure 1. The classical ECG curve with its most common waveforms. Important intervals and points of measurement are depicted. ECG interpretation requires knowledge of these waves and intervals. ECG interpretation traditionally starts with an assessment of the P-wave. The P-wave reflects atrial depolarization (activation).

What does early repolarization of an ECG look like?

Early Repolarization • A usually benign ECG pattern with an incidence of 5 to 13% of people so very common especially in young healthy athletes • ST elevation (J point elevation) of 1 mm or more in 2 or more contiguous leads (usually inferior or lateral or both) • ST morphology similar to pericarditis • No reciprocal changes Early Repolarization
