HISTORY As long ago as 1855, researchers Kollicker and Mueller discovered that when a motor nerve from a frog’s leg was laid over its beating heart, the leg would kick with a regular beat. Alexander Muirhead is reported to have attached wires to a feverish patient's wrist to obtain a record of the patient's heartbeat in 1872 at St. Bartholomew's Hospital. This activity was directly recorded and visualized using a Lippmann capillary electrometer.

NEED OF ECG?? Initially there was no device to monitor functioning of heart. Every heart problem was only detected by monitoring heart rate. So doctors found a need of detecting the electrical activity of heart thus setting a standard electrical wave for proper functioning of heart. So a device has to be made to plot this wave.

ELECTROCARDIOGRAM The electrocardiogram (EKG) is a representation of the electrical events of the cardiac cycle. Each event has a distinctive waveform, the study of which can lead to greater insight into a patient’s cardiac operations.
