What kinds of heart disease can not escape the eyes of electrocardiography?

1. Myocardial infarction

Myocardial infarction is a relatively common heart disease. Some people with chronic diseases, such as patients with high blood fat, high blood pressure, and high blood sugar, are prone to myocardial infarction due to clogged blood vessels. People with myocardial infarction can be accurately judged by electrocardiogram examination.

2. Expansion of atrial hypertrophy

When the atrial ventricle appears enlarged and other phenomena, the patient will have obvious heart discomfort. 
In this case, electrocardiogram examination can determine the new house and the causes of the enlarged atrial hypertrophy.

3. Arrhythmia

Arrhythmia is a relatively common heart disease. After the occurrence, the patient does not have obvious discomfort. It is only found during the examination that the frequency of the heart beat is abnormal. 
Also, most of the arrhythmia can only be achieved after passing the electrocardiogram. Checkup and ECG examination will not affect pregnant women.

4. pregnant women have heart disease

Pregnant women are prone to heart discomfort due to hormones during pregnancy. This is mainly because the rise of hormones during pregnancy can easily cause pregnant women to suffer from pregnancy heart disease. When this happens, they need to be judged by electrocardiogram.

What should I do while performing ECG examination?


1. Relax yourself

Most people will be too nervous during the ECG examination, but you don’t know that only by relaxing yourself you can avoid the heart beating too fast during the examination and erroneous test results. This is especially some pregnant women, when they worry about heart disease and harm the fetus, It is to be afraid that you are too anxious and make your heart beat faster, which will make the result wrong.

2. No fasting

Some people think that an electrocardiogram examination requires fasting and prohibition of drinking water, but they do not know that eating and drinking water has no effect on the electrocardiogram examination. So the electrocardiogram examination is a test that can be performed at any time, and does not need to be performed on an empty stomach .

Note: Although electrocardiogram examination is relatively common, some people take it as a physical examination item in daily life. So when you suspect these heart diseases, you should carry out an electrocardiogram examination in time, so that you can check the condition in time.
