  3. Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG): By this method the electrical activity of the heart is viewed which helps to determine whether any part of the heart has become enlarged, has overworked or damaged. 12 to 15 electrodes helps to detect heart’s electrical currents which are attached to person’s arms, legs and chest with a sticky tape.
