12-lead ECG machines show different angles of the heart – six connectors are attached to the chest skin around the heart and the remaining four on the arms and legs. Precise positioning is essential for a correct ECG result.

A guide to Ambu electrode placement

Electrodes are attached to a patient’s skin (usually chest and limbs) during an ECG procedure. Again, correct application of these is vital for a successful ECG reading.

How to use an ECG machine

12-lead ECG machines show a full, cohesive picture of a heart’s electrical activity. Electrodes are stuck onto a patient’s skin and the ECG connectors are attached. An ECG recording is produced and can then be interpreted by the healthcare professional.

What is an ECG machine used for?

An ECG machine can help to detect heart problems such as, an irregular heartbeat (an arrhythmia), a heart attack (myocardial infarcation), an enlarged heart or coronary heart disease.

They are also used to monitor the health of someone who already has a diagnosed heart condition or is taking medications that can affect the heart e.g. beta-blockers.
