ekg is a check on your heart, ecg is a catscan of your brain, btw it is painless


nikkmak
They're used interchangeably. According to acronymfinder.com, Elektrokardiogram is the Dutch/German version of the word, and possibly where the K comes into play.

In Afrikaans the ECG is also called EKG "die Electro Kardio Gram"

an EEG electro enchephalo gram measures brain waves.

They are the same and record electrical activey of the heart


cowboy_fan
An electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) is a test that checks for problems with the electrical activity of your heart. An EKG translates the heart's electrical activity into line tracings on paper. The spikes and dips in the line tracings are called waves. They might schedule you for an echocardiogram later......an ultrasound on your heart.


miss giggles
i work in the intensive care unit of our local hospital and a ekg and a ecg is the same thing. i have found that a lot of the more expierenced doctors still call them a ecg.


dmo1371
They are the same thing, an electrocardiogram which records the electrical events of the heart. The inventor of this was dutch, and initially called it ECG, but when he published it in a german journal it was called the EKG (elektrokardiogram).

It's the same thing - Electrocardiogram. EKG is the old abbreviation. An ECG (or EKG) uses 12 electrodes placed on the chest, arms, and legs for a comprehensive view of the heart's rhythm to check for abnormalities is rhythm or rate.
