ECG

ECG is a simple and painless method that can help to diagnose many cardiac problems, including heart attack. This examination is prescribed by the doctor and is carried out by our nurse. No special preparation is needed. During the examination the patient strips to the waist, removes her or his watch, lies down and uncovers both ankles in order for the electrodes to be attached. The nurse will moisten the skin with water and attaches the electrodes by suction (6 on the chest and one on each ankle and wrist). The patient is then asked to breathe calmly. In our surgery we use a computerised ECG with an automatic recording facility. The whole examination takes no more than a few minutes.
