What is an EKG/ECG? Why are they important? Here's what the Mayo Clinic has to say:
An electrocardiogram is a painless, noninvasive way to help diagnose many common heart problems in people of all ages. Your doctor may use an electrocardiogram to detect:
Irregularities in your heart rhythm (arrhythmias)
If blocked or narrowed arteries in your heart (coronary artery disease) are causing chest pain or a heart attack
Structural problems with your heart's chambers
A previous heart attack
How well certain ongoing heart disease treatments, such as a pacemaker, are working
You may need a heart rhythm test if you experience any of the following signs and symptoms:
Shortness of breath
Dizziness, lightheadedness or confusion
Weakness, fatigue or a decline in ability to exercise
The American Heart Association doesn't recommend using electrocardiograms to assess adults at low risk who don't have symptoms. But if you have a family history of heart disease, your doctor may suggest an electrocardiogram as an early screening test, even if you have no symptoms.
You can find more information about this at www.mayoclinic.org.
