EKG or ECG Test, Houston TX
EKG or ECG is Electrocardiogram. It helps to identify an abnormality in the functioning of a heart.
ECG is one of the easiest and quickest methods to identify some heart problems by analyzing the heart rhythm. Following the results of an EKG, the doctor at Paramount Clinic and Spa would suggest the treatment and appropriate medicines.
Why ECG\EKG is Done?
If you experience any of the following symptoms, you may need an ECG:
- Chest discomfort
- Bewilderment, lightheadedness, or vertigo
- Heart flutters
- Fast heartbeat
- Breathing difficulty
- Weakness, exhaustion, or a reduction in exercise capacity
It helps to identify some heart problems like atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, ventricular fibrillation and so on. These are the most common problems in people’s heart that are diagnosed with ECG. The ECG is done in the hospital or any hospital facility. ECG tests are also performed on patients with blockage of a coronary artery or coronary artery disease in the hospital to detect possible signs of a heart attack.Another way to perform an ECG is by doing an electrocardiogram (EKG) on a patient’s chest with no sense of pain. The EKG is just like the ECG but without the rhythm information and with only two leads: a lead I lead and a lead V lead. To read an EKG, you need two things that are absent from ECGs: electrodes and a heart rate monitor; placed on your chest or elsewhere nearby, they do not provide feedback on your heartbeat or other signals in your body.
