Stress Testing


An exercise stress test is used to evaluate how exercise affects your heart. Stress testing can be used if you are having chest pain, have had a heart attack, angioplasty procedure or heart bypass surgery. In a stress test, you exercise on a treadmill or stationary bike while the tests are performed. A stress test can help diagnose coronary heart disease, heart valve disease and heart failure.
