How to share your ECG data with your doctor

In this tutorial we will show you step by step, how to share your result on the ECG reading with your doctor. This is especially crucial if the ECG results show that you may potentially have atrial fibrillation.

  2. After taking at least one ECG, go into the Health app on your iPhone.
  3. Tap on Health Data near the bottom, and then tap on Electrocardiogram (ECG).
  4. Tap on the ECG result you’d like to send to your doctor.
  5. Tap on Export a PDF for Your Doctor.
  6. Tap the share button on the top right.
  7. Now choose how you want to send the PDF (Messages or Mail, for example).

  • It cannot detect a blood clot or stroke
  • It cannot detect other heart defects
