ICG (Impedance Cardiography)

Impedance Cardiography: A Medical Technology Breakthrough

Impedance cardiography is a medical technology breakthrough that provides physicians safe, noninvasive, and cost-effective access to information about your heart’s ability to deliver blood to your body and the amount of fluid in your chest. This vital data assists your physician to help identify underlying cardiovascular disorder, assess and diagnose, customize and target treatment, and monitor the effectiveness of prescribed medications.

The ICG is just as easy to apply as an EKG. Four special patches are placed on the neck and chest. A very small electrical signal is transmitted through the chest. Within minutes, the signal is analyzed by sophisticated software and recorded. The reports provide easy access to 12 vital parameters about your heart.
