Electrocardiogram tests in Alice Springs

 
 
Check the health of your heart at Mall Medical Centre. Our Alice Springs doctors provide electrocardiogram (ECG) tests to measure and record your heartbeat.

Using electrodes attached to your arms, legs and chest, we can take readings of your heart's electrical activity. These spikes in electrical activity may assist in diagnosing a wide range of heart conditions.

An ECG could be helpful in determining:
 
 
  • Muscle defects
  • Ectopic heartbeat
  • Congenital defects
  • Heart enlargement
 
 
 
  • Heart valve disease
  • Coronary artery disease
  • Changes in electrolyte amount
  • Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
 
 
 
  • Arrhythmia (abnormal heart rhythm)
  • Myocarditis (inflammation of the heart)
  • Pericarditis (inflammation around the heart)
  • Tachycardia or bradycardia (heart rate is too fast or too slow)
 
 
 
 
Based on the results, our doctors will then tailor a treatment plan for you, which may include further tests such as echocardiogram, blood tests or an angiogram. To book an ECG, speak to our staff at Mall Medical Centre today.
