What is Stress Testing?
A stress test is a medical test that measures how your heart performs under stress or exercise. During the test, your heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing are monitored while you walk on a treadmill. Stress testing can help diagnose and evaluate various heart conditions, such as coronary artery disease, arrhythmias, and heart valve problems.
Who Is Stress Testing Recommended For?
Individuals who are at risk for heart disease, such as those with a family history of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, or a history of smoking. Additionally, it may be recommended for individuals who have experienced chest pain, shortness of breath, or palpitations.
