e·lec·tro·car·di·o·gram

(ĭ-lĕk′trō-kär′dē-ə-grăm′)
A recording of the electrical activity of the heart. The electrocardiogram is used by doctors to analyze how well the heart is working and to diagnose abnormal heart rhythms. ♦ The machine used to record an electrocardiogram is called an electrocardiograph.
