What are the characteristics of an electrocardiogram? Although the electrocardiogram examination is already a relatively common examination method, the characteristics and applications of this examination are not widely known. Here, let's take a look at the applications and characteristics of ECG examination.

Application of electrocardiogram examination

It can be used as a diagnostic indicator for various arrhythmias, conduction disorders, and dextrocardia, and has a certain diagnostic value.

The diagnostic accuracy of myocardial infarction in adults or children is very high.

It is of great help to the diagnosis of atrioventricular hypertrophy, myocarditis, especially acute viral myocarditis, pericarditis and cardiomyopathy in children.

It can help to understand the effects and effects of certain cardiovascular drugs, such as digitalis quinidine, etc., and electrolyte disturbances on the myocardium to guide treatment.

It can be widely used in surgical anesthesia, medication observation and rescue of critically ill patients through ECG monitoring.

In addition, what are the characteristics of the ECG examination?

Features of the electrocardiogram

Under normal circumstances, the sinoatrial node emits excitement according to its inherent frequency, which is transmitted to the atrium, atrioventricular node, His bundle, left and right bundle branches, Pujinye fibers, and ventricle in a certain order and time. Excited accordingly. Arrhythmia occurs when a certain link of the above process is abnormal or when there is an ectopic rhythm other than the sinoatrial node. Abnormal ECG changes can be found if an EKG is performed during an arrhythmia attack. Therefore, it can be said that the electrocardiogram is a clinically necessary and rapid diagnostic method for the diagnosis of arrhythmia.

The above is the introduction about the application and characteristics of electrocardiogram examination, I hope it will be helpful to you.
