Considerations Before Electrocardiogram ECG Test

Considerations Before Going for Electrocardiogram, ECG Test

1. Female examiners avoid wearing dresses

2. Avoid the influence of drugs 
Some drugs directly or indirectly affect the results of electrocardiogram, such as digitalis, quinisil, etc. 
This is because drugs affect the metabolism of the myocardium, people taking such drugs affect the ECG graphics.
Therefore, you should explain to the doctor which medicines you have taken recently to avoid misdiagnosis.

During ECG inspection:

1. Please relax as much as possible during the inspection to ensure the quality of the inspection.

2. Perform when the test is quiet. Bioelectricity is generated due to muscle activity. Crying, taking deep breaths and moving the limbs will affect the ECG results. 
Thus, it should be done when the child or person is quiet. 
If necessary, give the sick child some sedatives to prevent interference caused by other muscle activities.

Interpretation of ECG ( Electrocardiogram ) indicators

Normal value:

    1. Normal ECG ( Electrocardiogram )

    P wave: voltage <0.25mV, time <0.11s, inverted in lead aVR, leads , , aVF, V4V6 stand upright
    P-R interval: 0.12 ~ 0.20s.
    QRS interval: 0.06 - 0.10s.
    QRS wave shape and voltage: aVR main wave is downward, R wave <0.5mV.
    Chest lead: R wave gradually increases from V1 to V6.
S wave gradually decreases from V1 to V6; R / Sv1 <1, R / Sv6> 1. Rv1 <1.0mV, Rv5 <2.5mV.
    There is no abnormal Q wave in each lead (Q wave time> 0.04s, Q wave voltage> 1 / 4R voltage), but lead aVR can be QS or Qr type, and lead V1 can be QS type.
    ST segment: the downward deviation of each lead should be <0.05mV. 
The upward deviation should be <0.1mV, but the V1V3 lead can reach 0.3mV.
    T wave: The T wave should be inverted in the aVR lead. Leads , and V4V6 are more upright, and other leads can be upright, bidirectional or inverted.
    Q-Tc interval: should not be> 0.44s.
    Electric axis: Normal ECG axis -30 ~ + 110 °. 
Left axis deviation: -30 ° ~ -90 °, right axis deviation:> + 110 °.
    P-P or R-R interval> 0.60s, <1.0s.

Electrocardiogram (ECG) Function

The purpose is to draw various patterns of potential changes from the body surface by electrocardiograph to judge the heart condition of the patient. 

Electrocardiogram is an objective indicator of the occurrence, spread and recovery process of cardiac excitement. 

Electrocardiogram is the earliest, most commonly used and basic diagnostic method in the diagnosis of coronary heart disease.
ECG examination process

1. Sleep peacefully, relax your muscles, breathe steadily, keep quiet, do not talk or move your position.

2. Remove the tops (women including bras). Scrub the skin clean, usually use 75% alcohol to wipe the skin where the electrode is placed. 
Apply conductive liquid to keep the skin in good contact with the electrode and conductive performance, corresponding to the chest. Attach the electrode to the location.

3. Wipe away the conductive liquid with toilet paper after inspection.

Difference Between COVID-19 Coronavirus and Other Flu Epidemic Infections

What are the differences between COVID-19 and the flu epidemic? The epidemic caused by the new Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) is still spreading. This disease, which has just been officially named COVID-19, has caused more than 40,000 infections and more than 1,000 deaths. At the same time, on the other side of the ocean, another epidemic also attracted people's attention. The flu season in the United States is on schedule.  According to data released by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, as of February 1, 22 million to 31 million people are expected to be infected during the flu season, and the number of patients dying from influenza is between 12,000 and 30,000.  Seeing such figures, some readers may be surprised when they think: Is the flu epidemic in the United States worse?   What are the differences between COVID-19 and the flu epidemic?
