ECG, or Electro-cardiogram, is an instrument which records the electrical activity in the heart muscle.

Leads are attached to specific points on the patient’s skin, and these detect the heart activity. This is then shown as a trace on a piece of paper. ECGs are mainly useful for analysing heart rhythm problems, but can also give information about chamber enlargement, and electrolyte disturbances in the blood.
