Electrocardiography (ECG/EKG) & Cardiac Monitoring
Electrocardiography, also known as ECG or EKG, is a non-invasive cardiac monitoring procedure used to evaluate electrical changes in the heart and assess for structural heart problems and various rhythym abnormalities. ECGs assist physicians in identifying new or old heart attacks, enlargement or hypertrophy of heart chambers and heart muscle, and abnormally fast, slow, or irregular heart beats. BCS Heart performs on-site electrocardiograms and provides a means for patients to have similar continuous cardiac monitoring performed while at home.

ECGs in the office take minutes to perform and involve a technician attaching certain leads (wires) to special stickers placed in precise positions on the skin surface of the chest. Holter monitors or event recorders are portable ECG monitors prescribed by your cardiologist to provide continuous cardiac monitoring while at home.

An example of an electrocardiogram image is on the right.
