Stress Echocardiography

Stress Echocardiography

To better understand how your heart and blood vessels are working, we may have you take a stress echocardiography.

Typically, this test is performed while walking on a treadmill, though it may also be medically induced in some circumstances.

First, we’ll monitor your heart’s activity during rest. Then you’ll exercise for a short period of time to increase your heart rate. Following the exercise, we will test your heart again to evaluate coronary blood flow to the heart muscle tissues and determine any abnormalities.

We make recommend a stress echocardiography to evaluate for:

  • Coronary Artery Disease
  • Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)
  • Tolerance of Cardiac Rehabilitation
  • Progress Following Bypass Grafting, Angioplasty, Anti-Anginal, or Antiarrhythmic Medications 

 

A stress echocardiography typically takes about an hour. Prior to your test, we will provide you with instructions on what you should and shouldn’t do leading up to your stress echocardiography. We also recommend that you wear comfortable clothing and sneakers for the exercise portion of the test.
