Exercise Stress Test

An exercise stress test is conducted on a treadmill; it helps doctors understand how well a patient's heart is handling work. When patients walk on the treadmill, their body is doing work. As a result the heart starts pumping more blood. The test shows how the heart and the arteries that supply the heart with blood are performing.

Other parameters such as heart-rate, blood pressure, breathing, tiredness are also monitored during the test. A stress test may be used to diagnose coronary artery disease, symptoms such as chest pain, breathlessness or lightheadedness. A stress test may also predict a patient's susceptibility to heart conditions such as a heart attack. A machine called electrocardiogram connected to the body by electrodes, is used during an exercise stress test to monitor the regularity and rate of heart beat.
