Perform Electrocardiography (ECG) (Health HLT07)
An ECG provides a record or trace of the electrical activity of the heart. The cardiac muscle tissue generates electrical impulses that flow through the heart. A measurement of this electrical activity can be made by placing electrodes on the chest wall and at specific points on the body, arms and legs. The electrical activity is displayed as waveforms which are named P, Q, R, S and T waves. The waveforms display the rate of electrical conduction and the rhythm of cardiac contractions through the heart.
