Stress Testing

Get your heart’s health tested

When you exercise, your heart works differently, so a stress test can help you determine how it works. A Stress Test can indicate problems with blood flow within your heart because it uses exercise to get your heart pumping harder and faster.

What happens during a Stress Test?

This test typically consists of walking on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike while your heart rate, blood pressure, and breathing rate are monitored by one of our cardiology specialists. Alternatively, you will be given a drug that mimics the effects of exercise.


If you have signs or symptoms of coronary artery disease or an abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia), we may advise a stress test.


What are its benefits?

Stress Testing can be beneficial because:


  • It helps us orient treatment choices.

  • It allows us to determine the effectiveness of heart treatment.

  • It aids us in determining the severity of a pre-existing heart condition.
