- Electrocardiograph (ECG): The machine used to record electrocardiogram.
- Electrocardiogram ECG: The graphic record of the electric current produced by the excitation of the cardiac muscles. It is composed of a ‘P’ wave, ‘QRS’ wave. (Complex) and ‘T’ wave.
- A special connective tissue that circulates in principal vascular system of man and other vertebrates consisting of fluid matrix, plasma and formed elements.

Cardiac Cycle: The rhythmic contraction and dilation of different parts of heart in one beat.
- Hypertension: The condition when blood pressure is higher than normal (120/80 mmHg)
- Systole: Contraction of heart muscles.
