pounding, and irregular heartbeat problems, headache, high blood pressure. The physician
then examines the patient, listens to the heart rhythm – heart action frequency. In diagnosis
setting, an important means is: ECG.
The ECG recording helps much to see the heart muscle condition. If need be, the parts of the

and round-the- clock blood pressure monitoring –
blood pressure holter.
