ECG at Suburban Diagnostics

At Suburban Diagnostics, ECGs are conducted by trained technicians. These are then reviewed by a specialist physician/cardiologist to check for any signs of a potential problem.

ECG – Electrocardiogram

An electrocardiogram is a painless, non-invasive way to diagnose many common types of heart problems:

  • Irregularities in heart rhythm (arrhythmia)
  • Heart defects
  • Problems with the heart’s valves
  • Blocked or narrowed arteries in the heart (coronary artery disease)
  • A heart attack, in emergency situations
  • A previous heart attack
How to Prepare

No special preparations are necessary. However, avoid exercising right before an electrocardiogram. Physical activity, such as climbing stairs, etc. may increase your heart rate.

An electrocardiogram is a safe procedure. There may be minor discomfort when the electrodes are taped to your chest. Although this happens rarely, a reaction to the electrodes may cause redness or swelling of the skin.

There isn’t any risk during an electrocardiogram. The electrodes placed on your body only record the electrical activity of your heart. They don’t emit electricity.
