Exercise Stress Testing

How Well is Your Heart Pumping Blood

What Happens During the Stress Test

Before you begin the stress test, you will be connected to an EKG machine that will provide data on how your heart is performing during the stress test. You may be asked to perform some breathing tests prior to beginning.

The treadmill speed and elevation will be increased in increments as you perform the test. If you experience any difficulties, the test may be ended.

Your Heart Works Hard

During the stress test, your heart is tested to see how well it handles large amounts of stress placed on it through exercise.
