An electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) is a simple, non-invasive, and painless test that records the electrical activity in your heart.
ECGs are used to check for signs of heart disease.
What is the difference between a single lead (1-lead) and a 12-lead ECG?
A single-lead ECG is used for arrhythmia detection and basic heart monitoring.
A 12-lead ECG is used to provide a comprehensive view of the heart and is the medical standard for screening and diagnosing various heart conditions. A 12-lead ECG is often used to detect or diagnose arrhythmias, heart attacks, drug effects on the heart, and many other heart diseases.
