Electrocardiogram (ECG)

An ECG or Electrocardiogram machine

An ECG or electrocardiogram records the electrical activity of your heart at rest. It provides information about your heart rate and rhythm, and shows if there is enlargement of the heart due to high blood pressure (hypertension) or evidence of a previous heart attack (myocardial infarction).

An electrocardiogram can be a useful way to find out whether your high blood pressure has caused any damage to your heart or blood vessels.

Because of this, you may be asked to have an ECG when you are first diagnosed with high blood pressure.

An ECG (electrocardiogram) is a safe and painless test that generally only takes a few minutes.

Leads from an electrocardiograph machine are attached to the skin on your arms, legs, and chest using sticky patches. These leads read signals from your heart and send this information to the electrocardiograph. The machine then prints the reading on a paper strip or on a screen.

There are some precautions before having ECG like wearing appropriate clothes and shoes. And avoid eating a meal or drinking a caffeinated drink for two hours before the test.(http://www.bloodpressureuk.org)
