Well it will pick up any abnormalities with the heart but would probably be combined with something like an echo as well.

Yes it can, my husband was tested as he was having an heart attack plus he also had a blood test as well to confirm it the heart attack.

ECGs are pretty damn good, they also can see if you have had any previous cardiac issues from the after -effects of them which influence your heart beat and circulation. If you're coming up AOkay, 95% chance is - you're a-okay!
