Treadmill Stress Test
This exam is used to assess the electrical impulses of your heart. This evaluation is for irregular heartbeats. Average exam time is 30 minutes. This exam is done only on a treadmill.

This test has three parts:
  1. You will be asked to disrobe from the waist up and given a gown to wear. The technologist will then hook up an EKG monitor to you for the entire exam, and two resting EKGs will be obtained immediately.
  2. You will then be asked to exercise on a treadmill. The average time is 6 to 10 minutes.
  3. When peak exercise is reached, you will stop exercising, and we will continue with the evaluation for five minutes.

Tennis shoes or comfortable walking shoes are a must. We suggest that you bring or wear comfortable clothes for exercising.

Exercise testing results are best done when you have not eaten one hour before the exam.

Medicines can be taken as usual.
