Resting ECG

Resting ECG - an ECG carried out while resting; normally lying down. An electrocardiogram (ECG) is an interpretation of the electrical activity of the heart over a period of time, resulting in a tracing of the cardiac cycle of the heart as a graph. It measures the rate and regularity of heartbeats as well as the size and position of the chambers and also the presence of any damage to the heart. A resting ECG is conducted in the Test Centre while lying down and connected to the ECG device.
