Dr Saha’s Private Screening service in Gloucestershire is a consultant-approved service, with all scan results reviewed directly by him, with that a further discussion of the scan available by appointment. Multiple cardiac tests can be done at the same time, in a “one-stop shop” way. Patients would therefore not need to make multiple visits, and would also avoid coming to a busy hospital, which would reduce cross infection risks.


The ECG is a very simple and quick test which looks at the electrical activity of the heart over time. It has been used in cardiology for many years and is a fundamental part of assessing the rhythm of the heart. The ECG provides a very short snapshot, about 10 seconds of the hearts rhythm and typically records 12 “leads” of activity from different areas of the body.

What happens during an ECG
If an ECG is requested you will be given a gown and asked to undress to the waist. Sticker or electrodes will then be attached across the chest and limbs. Wires or leads will be attached to the electrodes and a machine will then record the ECG. You will not feel anything during the ECG.


Discussion with Dr Saha is important to answer any questions that you may have. For information about any additional symptoms you may be suffering from that are not featured within the site, please contact us for more information.
