What is ECG Test & What Can It Detect?

Thank you for reading this article. My name is Will and I am from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Running man

I am an active person and I love tools, garment, equipment and technology which can help to improve sports performance.

Recently, I have been learning a lot on the Enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) treatment.

I am fascinated with non-invasive procedure which can help to improve our body blood circulation and EECP treatment definitely fit the bill.

One of the procedure that you have to do before knowing if the EECP treatment is suitable for you is an ECG test.

What is ECG test and what can the test detect?

As per NHS UK website:

“An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a simple test that can be used to check your heart’s rhythm and electrical activity.”

What can you expect when going through an ECG test?

During the test, sensors will be attached to your skin.

The sensors are used to detect the electrical signals produced by your heart each time it beats.

These signals are recorded by a machine and are looked at by a doctor to see if they’re unusual.

Who can carry out the ECG test?

The test can be carried out by a specially trained healthcare professional at a hospital, a clinic or at your GP surgery.

What can ECG test detect?

An ECG is often used alongside other tests to help diagnose and monitor conditions affecting the heart.

It can be used to investigate symptoms of a possible heart problem, such as chest pain, palpitations (suddenly noticeable heartbeats), dizziness and shortness of breath.

An ECG can help detect:

  • Arrhythmias – where the heart beats too slowly, too quickly, or irregularly.
  • Coronary heart disease where the heart’s blood supply is blocked or interrupted by a build-up of fatty substances.
  • Heart attacks – where the supply of blood to the heart is suddenly blocked.
  • Cardiomyopathy – where the heart walls become thickened or enlarged.

A series of ECGs can also be taken over time to monitor a person already diagnosed with a heart condition or taking medication known to potentially affect the heart.

How ECG test is carried out?

There are several different ways an ECG can be carried out.

Generally, the test involves attaching a number of small, sticky sensors called electrodes to your arms, legs and chest.

These are connected by wires to an ECG recording machine.

The test itself usually only lasts a few minutes, and you should be able to go home soon afterwards

Wearable technology

Other than EECP treatment, another wearable technology that I have been using to improve blood circulation is the Aulora Pants.

The Aulora Pants is a compression legging made using the Kodenshi fabric technology from Japan.

The manufacturing process of the Kodenshi fabric uses state-of-the-art technology to integrate ultra-fine ceramic particles into the fiber.

Ceramic stones, being a natural material will radiate far infrared rays (FIR) when it is heated.

FIR is safe and natural and it has the ability to penetrate deep into our skin.

What is the energy source for the Kodenshi fabric? How is it heated?

Kodenshi Fiber

The energy source used to heat up the ultra-fine ceramic particles in the Kodenshi material is our own body heat.

When the Aulora Pants material touches your skin, it will absorb your body heat and the ceramic particles in the fiber will emit the far infrared rays.

One of the benefits of FIR is its ability to improve your blood circulation.

How effective is the Aulora Pants with Kodenshi?
