Electrocardiogram

An ECG checks how your heart is functioning by measuring the electrical activity.

An ECG test uses a machine to measure and record the electrical activity of your heart. The ECG is a painless test that detects heart abnormalities by measuring the electrical activity generated by the heart as it contracts, and is a very useful tool for determining whether a person has heart disease. Electrodes are placed on your skin and the electrocardiograph records the electrical activity of the heart muscle and displays this data as a trace on a screen or on paper. 

You’ll be asked to remove all clothing and jewelry to the waist, so the electrodes can be placed on different parts of your body. The test is quick and takes 5-10 minutes.

Highly recommend! Don't waste time like I did trying to find a medical centre. If only I tried Dr Joseph first, who is an English Dr, polite and professional. It was only 10 euro in a cab from the city centre, I was seen straight away without an appointment and got the script I needed to start feeling better on my holiday.

This was the best service of medical assistance I have had in a long time. Dr. gave the diagnosis when even the best Hospital in Barcelona couldn't identify it, great medical care and service - I wont hesitate to visit Dr Joseph if I ever get sick again. He had been busy but still took the time to make me feel like I was the only patient there. Superb service, professionalism, care and assistance. Thank you.

I contacted Dr Joseph through whatsapp needing urgent care. He was able to see me in a few hours, had my tests done, and give me the right medication. Thank you so much Dr. Steven!
