Electrocardiography (ECG) is the acquisition of electrical activity of the heart captured over time by an external electrode attached to the skin. Each of the cell membrane that form the outer covering of the heart cell have an associated charge which is depolarized during every heart beat. These appear as tiny electrical signals on the skin which can be detected and amplified by the ECG.
