Exercise Stress Test (EST)

An exercise test, also known as treadmill test or simple stress test is recommended by a doctor to determine your cardiovascular health. In other words, it is to determine how your heart handles load in the form of work.

During the test, your body requires more oxygen and as a result the heart needs to pump faster. This test can determine if there are any blockages in the arteries and also decide the amount of exercise a patient can handle. A person taking the test is fitted with a heart monitor and made to walk on a treadmill. The speed of the treadmill is gradually increased and the treadmill is tilted slightly to create an effect of a climb. The person taking the test can stop any time. Your heart rate, EKG and blood pressure are monitored in the course of the test.
