Electrocardiograms Used To Determine The Cause Or Type Of Your Angina

Picture of Electrocardiogram Readout

Angina is not a disease, but it is a chest pain or discomfort with an assortment of symptoms that many assume are related to something else. It is an important symptom of an underlying condition known as coronary heart disease.

It is important to determine the causes and/or types of angina that you have. In order to do this Dr. Benvenisty may have you get an electrocardiogram (ECG). There are other tests that can be performed as well.

What is an Electrocardiogram?

An electrocardiogram is used to check for signs of heart disease. It does this by recording the electrical activity of your heart through small electrode patches that a technician attaches to your skin on your legs, arms and chest. With the results of this test Dr. Alan Benvenistry can see the rhythm of your heart. He can also see how your blood is flowing to your heart muscle. He can diagnose a heart attack and check to see if there are abnormalities such as thickening of your heart muscle.

The complete test only takes a few seconds after the electrode patches are carefully placed on your skin. These tests are helpful in monitoring changes in your results over a period of tests and to compare them in the future.

If you or a loved one is experiencing pain and increasing discomfort from angina, contact Dr. Benvenisty at his Amsterdam Avenue office today. He is committed to treating you as an individual with his personalized care given to every patient.

Dr. Benvenisty was excellent and helped us with my husband's extensive leg swelling related to diabetes. We had another specialist who didn't help us last year. We're planning to stay with Dr. Benvenisty now! He's detailed oriented, matter-of-fact and friendly. An excellent doctor I would strongly recommend.


Dr. Benvenisty treated my mother in the ER during this time of the covid outbreak. He was a part of a fantastic team of doctors that were brought in to find out what was ailing my mother. He is first and for most experienced in many areas as my mother was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Although he transferred the surgery to another member of his team, he gave me his mobile and kept me informed of her condition/diagnosis at a time where I was unable to be with her myself because of this pandemic. His heart, compassion, understanding and bedside manner are things that I will not ever forget. He is an excellent doctor and truly a great human being.
