Resting Electrocardiogram (ECG)
Resting ECG can observe whether there is any abnormality in the “resting state” of the heart, such as arrhythmia, atrial and ventricular hypertrophy, or myocardial hypoxia. However, some people do not experience myocardial hypoxia during rest. Therefore, cardiologists will arrange “exercise ECG” examination according to patients’ conditions. The examination let the patient run on a treadmill, and observe the changes in the patient’s cardiopulmonary function, blood pressure and heartbeat as the speed or slope changes.
