A good time to take an ECG is when having heart attack symptoms.
Patients with coronary artery blockages can show little symptoms or have normal electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) while at rest. In the same token, people with no heart problems can show convincing symptoms and suspicious EKG. The common recommendation is to do a cardiac stress test that measures the patient's blood pressure and ECG while exercising. However there are cases that the stress test does not reveal the artery blockage; furthermore, the stress test is expensive and must be performed in a medical facility.
An alternative is to take ECG while the patient is having the symptoms. By examining the changes in the ECG patterns between those taken with and without the symptoms, it can give more accurate diagnosis. Since the symptoms can occur any time and last only a few minutes, an ECG monitor must be on standby all the time. This is not practical before as EKG monitors was expensive and huge. With the advent of new technologies, affordable personal ECG monitors are available for home use.
The following is a list of heart attack warning signs as advocated by American Heart Association:
Not all of these symptoms occur in every attack. Sometimes they go away and return. If some occur, get help and act fast. The quickest way to obtain help is to ask for an ambulance. The paramedics can provide immediate help and also a patient would get more timely attention if he arrives in an ambulance.
