Abstract

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a routine clinical investigation undertaken to diagnose and monitor heart conditions. ECGs are needed for the identification and ongoing management of a range of health issues commonly experienced by people with learning disabilities. Additionally, some people with learning disabilities will have been prescribed antipsychotics and will therefore require cardiac monitoring. People with learning disabilities may require additional support before, during and after undergoing an ECG. This article explains how to support an adult with a learning disability to undergo an ECG.
