Exercise Stress Testing

An exercise stress test, sometimes also known as a treadmill test, or stress test, allows us to monitor how your heart responds to exercise on our specialized medical treadmill.

Stickers are placed on the chest to capture your heart rhythm. The incline of the treadmill and speed will slowly increase in short intervals as a cardiac technologist monitors the electrical activity of your heart as you walk and run on the treadmill.

The test will be completed when you reach your target heart rate, or sooner in the event that you tell the technologist that you wish to stop.
