ECG testing is completely safe and pain-free. It involves attaching a number of sticky electrodes or small sensors to the arms, legs and chest area.

Coronary heart disease
To detect heart disease if a patient shows symptoms such as dizziness, fainting, shortness of breath and heart palpitations.
When the walls of the heart are swollen or thickened.
To monitor heart health when a patient has other conditions or illnesses, such as diabetes, smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or a family history of heart disease.
