EKG Quizzes & Trivia

The EKG is also known as the electrocardiogram test. This is known to be the test that will measure the electrical activity of your heartbeat. With every beat that the heart takes, the wave will travel through the heart. This wave will be in charge of making the heart squeeze and pump blood. If in case there is no wave available, then the heart will stop pumping, and the monitor will show a flat line. This is something that people would like to avoid when they are in hospital.

The EKG test will usually indicate if there are some issues with the person’s heart. If there are some signs of heart disease, the physician may require further tests to determine what exactly is wrong. There are instances when the EKG will show some abnormalities, but this will not affect your current physical health.
