Electrocardiography ( ECG )


Electrocardiography is a device to investigate the electrical function of the heart. It can be an easy screening test for the early finding of heart disease.

  • Take your relevant medical history
  • Explain all findings and write an official report after ECG
  • Offer GP or specialist referral  if needed

Our doctor will explain the procedure before the procedure. You will be guided to lie on your back on the examination couch. A small amount of water-based gel will be applied to your chest. There are some leads attached to your chest and your electrical heart function will be recorded with the machine. You will not feel any discomfort. An ECG is regularly completed within 10 minutes.

There are no risks, side effects, or radiation associated with electrocardiograms. It is pretty safe during pregnancy.

Usually, there is no preparation for an electrocardiogram, our nurse colleague will explain more during your appointment.
