Although 1-lead ECG (EKG) recorders are normally used primarily for basic heart monitoring, checking for various arrhythmias, or simple educational or research purposes, they can also be used for looking at the effects of exercise on the ECG. One-lead recorders can also be used to accomplish full 12-lead recordings in a sequential manner.

New, low-priced, 1-lead handheld ECG recorders have become available for personal, home, and sports use, much as with home blood-pressure/pulse recorders or glucose testers for diabetics. They also are suitable in some emergency situations. Otherwise, they can be used by the general public for personal recording of information, such as to baseline information, routine monitoring, or during uncommon events, like with cardiac event recorders. The recordings can then be shown to the person's cardiologist or electrophysiologist or, for non-emergency or simple monitoring purposes, used by the person himself or herself if he or she is able to interpret them

One-lead ECG recorders may also be used for monitoring the heart in association with regular exercise, workouts, and sports activities. The actual recordings need to be done while the body is not moving, to avoid artefacts from the muscles. However, "resting" measurements can nonetheless be done during exercise and while the heart is responding to the exercise by briefly interrupting the activity long enough to obtain a recording or immediately after finishing the activity. Recordings can also be made while resting during the recovery period following exercise. The use of any ECG recorder for exercise, however, is somewhat akin to stress tests done in a clinic or hospital under medical supervision and should not be done at home if cardiac problems are suspected or might occur or if clear emergency or urgent situations exist. Please consult a cardiologist if in doubt.
