Exercise Stress Test
An exercise stress test is a type of test that can help diagnose the risk of heart disease or acute myocardial infarction while exercising. It allows physicians to detect any abnormal responses to physical activity, such as difficulty breathing, chest pain, abnormal heart rhythms, or changes in the heart’s electrical activity. These abnormal responses indicate an inadequate blood supply to the heart muscles during exercise.
Patients must inform the medical personnel immediately if they require the treadmill to be slowed or stopped, or experience the following:
Once the test is complete, medical personnel will continue to monitor the patient’s blood pressure and heart rate until the levels return to normal. If the doctor suspects any abnormalities, they may conduct further testing or propose alternative testing methods in order to acquire more definitive results.
After the test, the patient may eat, take their medication, and go about their activities as usual – unless instructed not to do so by a doctor.
