    Thank you @HICHAM_T2,. It is one thing to learn how to read an ECG, it is another to interpret it.
    And we have experts to do that, some more expert than others of course!!

    Echocardiogramms are when a health professional uses a sort of ultrasound scan. He scans you heart for about 20 minutes.

    An electrocardiogram is when you have some electrodes attached to your body for a few minutes.

    You get to see interesting graphics, and I love that squelch noise the heart makes. The last echocg I had done last year, I tried to get a copy of that noise to use as a sms notification sound on my phone but I missed it. Next time...

    Oh yes, fascinating to watch the screen, and those squelching noses are quite relaxing - at least as long as there are some!
