HEARTBEAT

One of the medical term that I am confused of, is this abbreviation called ecg , not until I  searched for the meaning about  the medical machine to make me understand more of the process.  According to what I have read, ECG  was derived from the Greek word  Electro , because it is related to electrical activity and  while Cardio is Greek  word for heart , and graph, for Greek meaning to write.

The Electro machine is said to best measure and diagnose abnormal rhythms of the heart particularly abnormal rhythms caused by damage to the conductive tissue that carries signals, or abnormal rhythms cause by electrolyte imbalance. Amazing Isn't it, that this invention was born. Electrocardiograph, already helped a countless heart for decades now.

I was experience chest pain, and I was just ignoring it. When it became worst, I realized that I might really need medical attention. When I went to Phil. Heart Center, the first thing they did is, check my vitals and ECG. Good thing, It wasn't a heart attack. ECG is really important, it's one way to check the electric rhythms of our heart. Tnx for sharing! =)
