The aim of the electrocardiogram is to determine any damage to the heart and the effects of medication and devices on the circulatory system’s main organ, as well as being very useful in detecting and analysing cardiac arrhythmias, acute episodes of coronary artery disease and myocardial infarction. It can also be used in preoperative examinations, especially in medium- and high-complexity surgery, if there are risk factors such as ischemic heart disease, diabetes, stroke, heart failure or renal dysfunction.
