Electrocardiogram

An electrocardiogram, or ECG, is a test that measures the electrical activity of the heart. This test is used to detect a variety of heart conditions, including heart attacks, arrhythmias, and heart disease. The ECG test is non-invasive and easy to perform, making it a valuable tool for both diagnosis and treatment.

At TGH Urgent Care powered by Fast Track, we understand the importance of timely and accurate diagnosis when it comes to heart health. That’s why we offer ECG testing as part of our urgent care services. Our state-of-the-art equipment and experienced staff ensure that our patients receive the best possible care.

The ECG test is performed by attaching small electrodes to the patient’s chest, arms, and legs. These electrodes detect the electrical signals generated by the heart and transmit them to the ECG machine. The machine then records the electrical activity of the heart and produces a graph known as an ECG trace.

Conditions Detected by ECG

The ECG trace is a visual representation of the electrical activity of the heart. It provides important information about the heart’s rhythm and can detect a variety of conditions, including:

  • Heart attacks: An ECG can detect changes in the heart’s electrical activity that indicate a heart attack has occurred.
  • Arrhythmias: An ECG can detect abnormal heart rhythms, which can be a sign of an arrhythmia.
  • Heart disease: An ECG can detect changes in the heart’s electrical activity that indicate the presence of heart disease.

At TGH Urgent Care, our ECG tests are performed by trained and experienced staff. Once the test is complete, the ECG trace is interpreted by a physician, who can then provide a diagnosis and recommend treatment.

One of the advantages of TGH Urgent Care’s ECG testing is the speed and efficiency of our services. With our Fast Track program, patients can be seen by a physician and have an ECG test performed quickly, allowing for prompt diagnosis and treatment. This can be especially important in the case of a heart attack, where timely treatment can make a significant difference in the outcome.

In addition to our ECG testing services, TGH Urgent Care also offers a range of other heart-related tests and treatments. This includes blood pressure and cholesterol testing, as well as treatment for chest pain and other heart-related symptoms.

At TGH Urgent Care, we understand the importance of heart health and are committed to providing our patients with the best possible care. Our ECG testing services, combined with our other heart-related services, allow us to quickly and accurately diagnose and treat a wide range of heart conditions.

It is important to note that ECG testing is not a definitive test for heart disease; it can only show an abnormal rhythm or potential blockages. It is important to follow up with a cardiologist if any abnormalities are found in the ECG. Additionally, ECG testing should be combined with other diagnostic methods such as blood tests, imaging, and physical examination to give a complete picture of the patient’s heart health.
