Clinical Education Series: Electrocardiogram

April 17, 2015

The electrocardiogram or ECG sometimes called EKG is used worldwide as a relatively simple way of diagnosing heart conditions. An electrocardiogram is a recording of the small electric waves being generated during heart activity. While electric currents in the heart have been measured for more than a hundred years, the ECG as we know it today was developed by the Dutch scientist Willem Einthoven in the beginning of the 20th century. In 1924 Einthoven was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine for his discovery of the mechanism of the electrocardiogram.
