Home / ECG Electrocardiographic Doctor Manhattan NYC
This is a simple test also known as an EKG or ECG to determine the electrical activity in the heart. It is useful in determining if there are irregular heartbeats and if there is a prior heart attack.
During the ECG test electrodes will be attached to your arms, legs and chest. The electrodes (sticky patches applied with a gel) will connect to some wires to help detect and conduct the electrical currents of your heart. This important test normally only takes a few minutes.
The cardiologist will look for a consistent, even heart rhythm and a heart rate between 50 and 100 beats a minute.
