is the process of producing an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG[a]), a recording
 of the heart's electrical activity.It is an electrogram of the heart which is a
 graph of voltage versus time of the electrical activity of the heart using electrodes
 placed on the skin. These electrodes detect the small electrical changes that
 are a consequence of cardiac muscle depolarization followed by repolarization
 during each cardiac cycle (heartbeat). Changes in the normal ECG pattern occur
 in numerous cardiac abnormalities, including cardiac rhythm disturbances (such
 as atrial fibrillation and ventricular tachycardia), inadequate coronary artery
 blood flow (such as myocardial ischemia and myocardial infarction), and
 electrolyte disturbances (such as hypokalemia and hyperkalemia).

Benefits & Features

  • Remote
     ECG monitoring allows medical professionals to review a person s
     electrocardiogram immediately when they re experiencing symptoms or to check
     their heart rate or rhythm at any time (i.e., at rest, during physical
     activity, or when stressed).
  • It
     allows them to detect certain arrhythmias or irregular heart rhythms that may
     be causing symptoms.
  • Monitors
     are available in many forms, including Holter monitors, loop recorders, and
     event monitors. There are also implantable cardiac monitoring devices for
     people with infrequent symptoms.
  • These
     devices work by using either electrodes or sensors on the skin s surface to
     detect the heart s electrical signal.
