After a successful ECG recording, you will receive one of the following information:
- Normal Sinus Rhythm: A normal sinus rhythm means the heart is beating in a uniform pattern between 50-100 bpm.
- Atrial Fibrillation: AFib is the most frequent form of heart rhythm disorder, it can lead to heart failure and it is a major risk for stroke. AFib is a frequent condition as populations are getting older. High blood pressure and obesity can also lead to AFib. Some people who have AFib don’t know they have it and don’t have any symptoms. Others may experience one or more of the following symptoms: irregular heartbeat, palpitations, shortness of breath. If you are experiencing any symptoms or have concerns, please contact your physician.
- Inconclusive: An inconclusive result means the recording can’t be classified. This can happen for many reasons, such as not resting your arms on a table during a recording, contracting arm or hand muscles during measurement, or if your ECG device is too loose around the wrist and/or fingers are not in proper contact with the ring around the watch face. Certain conditions, such as a pacemaker or anatomical variations, may prevent a small percentage of users from creating enough signal to produce a good recording.
- A heart rate can be low because of certain medications or if electrical signals are not properly conducted through the heart. Training to be an elite athlete can also lead to a low heart rate.
- A heart rate can be high because of exercise, stress, nervousness alcohol, dehydration, infection, AFib, or another arrhythmia.
