ECG Device

An ECG device (also called an electrocardiograph) is used to record the sum of the electrical activities of all the heart muscle fibers and to display them visually. The heart itself generates an electrical stimulus that spreads and can be measured using electrodes. This allows the doctor to assess whether the heart is working properly. The ECG machines used today have automated  medical algorithms for interpreting the heart’s activity. In this algorithmic analysis, the PR interval, the QT interval, the corrected QT interval (QTc), the PR axis, the QRS axis and the rhythm are calculated.

There are various conduction systems that allow the recording of electrical stimulus in the heart. The aim and purpose of the individual discharge systems is to make a quick diagnosis that matches the patient’s clinical complaints so that treatment steps can be initiated in a timely manner. This recording can be done using the following ECG devices:

With the help of an ECG device, the following heart diseases can be detected:

  • Heart failure
  • Cardiac arrhythmias – atrial fibrillation, slow heartbeat (bradycardia), heart palpitations (extrasystole)
  • Heart attack
  • Heart muscle inflammation (myocarditis)
  • Pericarditis (inflammation of the heart sac)
  • Coronary heart disease
