Computer electrocardiogram( computer ECG)
Computer electrocardiogram is currently the most accurate and informative method for identifying a number of pathologies of the cardiovascular system.This simple non-invasive technique is included in the list of mandatory screening studies, the purpose of which is to place some patients at risk for certain diseases.Table of contents: What pathology helps to identify the computer's ECG?Advantages of computer ECG Indications for computer ECG
What pathology helps to identify a computer's ECG?Recommended reading:
Among the most serious diseases and pathological conditions that are detected with the help of computer ECG:
- myocardial infarction;
- heart palpitations;
- arrhythmias of various types;
- chronic heart failure;
- rheumatic carditis;
- mitral valve prolapse;
- weakness of the sinus node;
- hypertension and hypotension.
Note: The computer electrocardiogram is a dynamic record of electrical charges that form in the heart muscle.
The method allows to determine the degree of local thickening of the heart muscle, to determine the indices of intracardiac conductivity and to detect pathological changes in the atria and ventricles.The computer ECG makes it possible to establish the presence or absence of disturbances in electrolyte metabolism, as well as toxic damage to the myocardium.
Advantages of computer ECG
Computer ECG is an indispensable method of controlling the dynamics of the disease.Electrical potentials can not only be fixed on paper, but also reflected directly on the monitor of the electrocardiograph monitor.This diagnostic method is characterized by the fact that the data obtained become known to the cardiologist immediately after the procedure is completed.
Important: for timely recognition of cardiac and vascular diseases, it is advisable to take a computer ECG at least once a year.This is especially true for patients aged 35-40 years.
With infarction, this method of hardware research helps in the shortest possible time to identify the exact location of the focus, the duration of the infarction, as well as the total area and depth of the area of myocardial ischemia.
Modern cardiographic complexes operate in an automatic mode and analyze the data received in an exceptionally short time.The specificity of data acquisition is based on the study of teeth and segments that have the property of changing shape in pathologies.Computer ECG determines the state of the "pacemaker", clarify the heart rate, set the position of the so-called.The electric axis of the organ and to reveal the degree of deviation of the apex from the normal anatomical location.An electrocardiogram shows the state of the paths of the pulse and its anomalous sources.
Indications for computer ECG
Diagnostic procedure is assigned to patients in a number of cases, including:
- routine examination( medical examination);
- upcoming planned or emergency surgery;
- professional risks( heavy physical work, frequent psychoemotional stresses, work at chemical enterprises, etc.);
- an estimation of professional suitability of people of some trades( drivers, pilots, seamen);
- patient complaints of pain in the chest area;
- arrhythmia development;
- worsening of patients with diagnosed cardiac pathologies;
- presence of risk factors for heart disease( pregnancy, hypertension, age over 40 years, smoking, high blood cholesterol, transferred diseases of infectious genesis);
- any suspicions of diseases of the cardiovascular system;
- pathology of the endocrine system;
- foci of chronic infection.
Note: is a computer-based electrocardiogram that is not only informative, but also completely safe diagnostic procedure.
The computer complex is able to automatically archive the data received during the survey into a personal computer.Subsequently, they are recorded in the patient's electronic outpatient card.
