Does it hurt?
An ECG is a simple, non-invasive test that measures your heart’s rhythm using electrodes that are placed onto the chest. The test does not cause any pain, although you may feel some slight discomfort as the electrodes are removed.
What if my ECG detects an issue?
Your Consultant will be able to discuss any concerns from the results of your electrocardiogram and will help you to arrange any further consultations or treatment if needed.
