An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) measures the electrical activity of your heart. The heart generates electrical signal which flows out from your heart through your body. Small electrical sensors, called electrodes, sense the electricity which in turn is transmitted to a graph paper.

EKG can be used to:

    1. Diagnose heart attacks and rhythm problems.
    2. Detect conditions that alter the body's balance of electrolytes (eg, potassium and magnesium )
    3. Detect other problems, such as overdoses of certain drugs

An ECG may also be obtained if you are about to have surgery, are an older adult or have diabetes, to check occasionally for any changes, and if you have had a heart-related procedure, such as getting a pacemaker.

If you have any questions, you can consult with Dr. Jimenez or Dr Sanchez for an appointment.
