Reading an ECG is both an art and science. Doctors and EMTs train for many years to be able to accurately read ECGs. First try to talk about it with your physician. They may be able to help. If you want more information, try getting a book on ECG interpretation.

An ECG, or electrocardiogram, is composed of several elements. Tracing the electrical activity of the normal cardiac cycle includes segments known as a P wave, a QRS complex, and a T wave. The first "hill" is the P wave. The QRS complex includes a dip, a large spike, and another dip. The T wave follows this complex.

There are very subtle, minute portions of the ECG which are usually only seen and understood by a trained professional. The ECG does not only indicate heart disease, but indicates problems being caused by medication such as Digoxin, among other medical problems that are affecting the heart rhythm but it does not mean that heart disease exists.

An ECG is checking for irregularities in your heart rate. Look along the ECG for any significant changes in the waves. Specific waves are specific to the different chambers and ventricles of the heart pumping as well. Ask the tech administering it to explain it to you.
