Why Computerized ECG Test?


Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) records the electrical signals transmitted by the heart – i.e it gives a graphic display of the electrical activity of the heart. ECG machines are standard equipment in operating theaters, emergency wards in hospitals, ambulances with basic life support (nowadays some personal devices such as smartwatches too offer ECG monitoring), etc. It is a non-invasive and painless test performed (under the supervision of physicians or trained paramedics) in clinics that helps to detect heart problems quickly and to monitor prognosis in heart-related disorders. Electrodes (a small plastic patch that sticks to the skin) are placed at certain parts on the chest, arms, and legs (Einthoven Triangle), that are connected to an ECG machine by lead wires, and the resulting electrical activity of the heart is measured, interpreted and printed out. ECG is ordered as a part of the routine physical test or in cases with patients presenting with clinical manifestations such as chest pain, palpitations (noticeable heartbeats), murmurs, dizziness, shortness of breath, etc. A computerized ECG test helps to read ECGs by making frequent determinations of the direction, positive or negative, that the ECG is taking. Hence by taking this information, the computer calculates whether it is a ‘q’ wave or ST-segment elevation or depression, etc, thus delivering automated interpretations. Conditions that may interfere with ECG results are obesity, pregnancy, ascites, smoking, exercise, electrolyte imbalance, and certain medications, etc. ECG is a useful tool in identifying irregular heartbeats, conditions such as myocardial infarction, endocarditis (inflammation of the heart valves), monitor implanted pacemakers, monitor medications for heart diseases. Other related studies include echocardiograms etc.
