ECG MACHINE

An ECG machine is used for graphically recording and monitoring the electrical activity of various phases of heart beat. This is done with the help of electrodes externally attached to the outer surface of skin, on the chest and limbs of patients with heart diseases. It enables monitoring the functions of heart accurately in a very short span of time, there by helping in efficient diagnosis and treatment of heart related problems.

ECG machine is medical equipment which measures and record the electrical activity of the heart. ECG machine also known as Electrocardiograph. ECG’s leads or electrodes are placed to the patient with the help of Conductive ECG Jelly.

An electrocardiogram records the electrical signals in your heart. It’s a common and painless test used to quickly detect heart problems and monitor your heart’s health. Electrocardiograms — also called ECGs or EKGs — are often done in a doctor’s office, a clinic or a hospital room. ECG machines are standard equipment in operating rooms and ambulances. Some personal devices, such as smart watches, offer ECG monitoring.

The ECG machine is used to perform a routine examination of the electrical activity of the human heart or to ascertain the condition of the heart in an emergency.

Functions of ECG machine involve recording of the heart beats of patients being examined in the form of waves on a graphic paper. These waves are known as ECG waves. Each electrical stimulus takes the shape of a wave and patterns are formed on the paper with inter related waves. The graphic ECG paper is made up of small squares of 1mm. A standard ECG prints 25 such small squares per second. So duration of a particular wave is easily calculated in a given time span. 10 small squares vertically equal to one mille volt. In this way, amount of voltage released by heart is also measured. If the graph is flat at any time without waves, it means no electrical activity is happening at that particular moment.

An ECG machine is capable of capturing and recording all these functions of the heart in a graphical form enabling accurate diagnosis and treatment of functions of the heart. By studying the movements of these ECG waves depicted by ECG machines, doctors can easily study the heart beat variations. This helps them in locating the defects of heart functions and thereby to prescribe the correct treatment.
ECG machine is safe and easy to use as and when required without requirement of any elaborate arrangement. Further, it is very economical for the patient to have ECG reports.
