Resting ECG

This test provides a recording of the electrical activity in your heart.

The heart has an electrical system that makes sure that the chambers of the heart beat in a regular and synchronised way. The Resting ECG is a recording of this electrical activity, taken whilst you are resting. Self-adhesive pads are attached to the skin of the arms, legs and chest. The test takes approximately 10 minutes and no special clothing is required.
