Electrocardiogram (ECG)

An ECG measures the electrical activity of your heart.

During the test, you will be asked to lie down, and small adhesive electrodes will be placed on your chest. The electrodes are connected to an ECG machine, which records the electrical signals produced by your heart. The test is painless and typically takes a few minutes to complete. The results provide information about your heart’s rhythm, rate, and any potential abnormalities.
