An electrocardiogram (ECG) is used to record the electrical activity that accompanies each stage of a heartbeat. This tracing is useful in diagnosing many heart conditions. It requires placement of electrodes connected by stickers to the skin of the chest. During an ECG, the patient should not feel any pain or discomfort.
