Scope:Help on this term

An electrocardiogram (ECG) measures the electrical activity of the heart over time. The evaluation of an ECG provides important diagnostic information relevant to the risk stratification, diagnosis and management of acute coronary syndromes. The electrocardiogram cluster collects information on the timing of each ECG and specific diagnostic characteristics determined from the ECG:
• ECG change type and location
• Bundle-branch block status
• Q waves status
• ST-segment elevation in lead V4R
