Human Body Quizzes & Trivia

Are you aware of how the human body relates to BMI and ECG? BMI stands for body mass index, which serves as a guideline to whether you have too much or too little body fat around the waist. ECG stands for electrocardiogram. ECG records impulses to show how fast the heart is beating and whether they are irregular or regular beats. With this quiz, your understanding of BMI and ECG will not skip a beat.
