EKG or ECG

EKG or ECG (Electrocardiography)

An EKG or ECGis a common, painless, and inexpensive test that records the electrical activity of the heart. It can tell if the heart is beating normally or detect heart disease or problems with the heart's electrical conduction system. Depending on what the results show, in combination with your medical history and a physical exam, your doctor may order further tests or a combination of medications and lifestyle changes.
