EKG is a line graph depicting variations in cardiac electrical activity over time. It is produced using a device known as an electrocardiograph.
The electrical impulses in the heart are recorded by an electrocardiogram. It’s a frequent and painless test for detecting heart issues and monitoring heart health. An electrocardiogram, commonly known as an ECG or EKG, is frequently performed at a doctor’s office, clinic, or hospital room.
To prevent ambiguity, it became normal practice to use the acronym for the German spelling-elektrokardiogramm- for the cardiac exam, which is why it is frequently referred to as an EKG.
