What is Borderline ECG | How Serious It Can Be


Borderline ECG is a condition that assesses the electrical activity of your heart whether it’s normal or abnormal. It tracks the record of electrical signals in the heart to determine if you need further treatment. The abnormal EKG generally occurs when you face any electrolyte imbalance in your body. 


What is the procedure?

It is a painless procedure and doesn’t require any preparation to perform the test. Inform about your medication and old treatment to the healthcare provider and try to drink normal water or juice to keep the fluid balance in the body. The electrodes are placed on your chest to measure how fast the heart is beating and locate the position of the heart chambers.

You simply have to lie down and the attendants will perform the whole process and the final result will be reviewed by the doctor itself.

Be patient and calm while performing the ECG test because being hyper may cause inappropriate electrical activity which will ultimately affect the result. and avoid taking excess fluid, if the balance of the electrolyte will disrupt then it may cause osmosis in tissues. 

According to Mayo Clinic, around 12 electrodes are attached to the chest and limbs. They are basically sticky patches that have wires connected to a monitor. They are helpful in recording electrical signals. All the information is recorded by computer and then displayed like waves on a monitor or on paper.

Why abnormal ECG readings are found?

  • The abnormality in the Heart Rhythm.
  • Side effects of medication.
  • Heart attack
  • Imbalance in Electrolytes.
  • Excessive stress or anxiety.
