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

    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!

    I have had 24 of them In the past 12 years... always come out perfect... so why do I still worry about having a heart attack?
