Your guide to ECG (Optional)

Do you have an ECG coming up? Watch this video to find out what to expect.

You can find out more about ECG in Dr Sam Boateng’s video on Heart function in Week 1. Alternatively, if you’d like to investigate how an ECG can be used to detect abnormal heart rhythms, a major cause of sudden cardiac arrests, go to his video on Arrythmias in Week 3.
