An electrocardiogram — also referred to as EKG or ECG — is a test that measures the electrical signals that control the rhythm of your heartbeat. Lux Medical Health Center Physicians perform many electrocardiograms for our South Florida Patients. Your cardia specialist can look for patterns among these heartbeats and rhythms to diagnose various heart conditions.
An electrocardiogram may show:
Evidence of heart enlargement.
Signs of insufficient blood flow to the heart.
Signs of a new or previous injury to the heart (heart attack).
Heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias).
Changes in the electrical activity of the heart caused by an electrolyte imbalance in the body.
Signs of inflammation of the sac surrounding the heart (pericarditis).
