Stress test (ECG Resting and after Exercise) is a cardiological test that measures a heart's ability to respond to external stress in a controlled clinical environment. The stress response is induced by exercise or by drug stimulation.
If we have underlying symptoms of certain disease this test is used for them
- Coronary artery disease ( ischemic heart disease),
- For patient prognosis after a myocardial infarction (heart attack).
Aadil Hospital's doctor may recommend an exercise stress test to:
- Diagnose coronary artery disease. Your coronary arteries are the major blood vessels that supply your heart with blood, oxygen and nutrients. Coronary artery disease develops when these arteries become damaged or diseased — usually due to a buildup of deposits containing cholesterol and other substances (plaques).
- Diagnose heart rhythm problems (arrhythmias). Heart arrhythmias occur when the electrical impulses that coordinate your heart rhythm don't function properly, causing your heart to beat too fast, too slowly or irregularly.
- Guide treatment of heart disorders.
If the results of your exercise stress test suggest coronary artery disease or reveal an arrhythmia, the information gathered during the test will be used to help Aadil Hospital's doctor develop a treatment plan.
