Good evening, I’m amel I’m 18 years old. 2 weeks ago I finished doing an EKG, so when I checked my chest was tight. Does it affect the results of the ECG examination?

1 Answer:

Hi Amelya, Thank you for the question.

Electrocardiography (EKG) is an examination that records the electrical activity of the heart which can be performed on anyone to detect abnormalities in the heart. This examination is performed by placing electrodes on the chest, hands and feet. During this examination, you are advised not to move because any movement of the hands or chest wall can cause noise / artifacts on the ECG examination results but does not affect the general ECG results (such as being abnormal). To answer your question, depending on what was happening when your chest was tight. Are there significant chest wall movements or are you also experiencing palpitations? If you then experience a palpitations, the result of the heart rate on the EKG will increase. If there is significant chest wall movement, the results of the examination will find waves that interfere with the reading of the EKG (artifact). But this does not affect the results of the EKG in general. If an abnormality is found, it is usually still detected.

Hope this information is helpful.
