What is a stress test?
Who needs a stress test?
What to expect before the test?
What happens during the test?
Before, during, and after the test, the ECG will be recording and your blood pressure taken at different intervals. You will be asked to begin walking on the treadmill. Depending on the degree of difficulty, you may walk slowly or very fast.
The technician helping with the test will always be watching the monitors and how you are doing. You will be asked how you are feeling at regular intervals. If you begin to feel light-headed, dizzy, or in pain, tell the technician. After the test, you will cool down for a bit to get your heart rate, blood pressure, and ECG as close to normal as possible.
You should follow up with your doctor to go over your stress test results to determine what action should be taken next.
