We offer two main types of ECG examinations
Resting ECG services
If there is a need for our specialist doctor to know how your heart is working while you are at rest, you will be asked to lie down and relax while the heartbeat is being recorded this is known as Resting ECG.
Our cardiologist may be interested in how your heart reacts to activity and you will be asked to walk or run on a treadmill or cycle on an exercise bike while your heartbeat is recorded. This is known as Stress ECG
