Electrocardiogram (E.C.G.)

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a graphical representation of the electrical activity of the heart.The electrical activity is related to the impulses that travel through the heart to determine the heart rate and rhythm, these shapes are quite different in relation to the shape, size and conduction disturbances electricity so-called conduction blocks.It is evident by what we say how useful is the monitoring of ECG in medical diagnosis; both for normal and pathological situations resulting from physical and physiological causes. The parameters of 'ECG are altered, more or less strongly, when there is some cardiac problem of any nature. It is important for one who interprets the track, know what variations may exist, how to seek and to know wath's meaning. The ECG gives us, in fact, information about: heart rate, rhythm of the heart, or the presence of any "blocks"; presence of any abnormal beats (extrasystoles), signs of heart attack or ischemia and alterations of various electrical waves that may indicate morphological alterations of the cardiac chambers such as those induced by disease.
