An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a test to evaluate the heart. Surface electrodes, placed on the chest and torso, collect electrical currents propagated by the heart to the surface of the body. These currents are translated into the ECG waveform by the electrocardiograph. The ECG is then interpreted by a trained diagnostician.
