Stress ECG

This exam monitors the ECG signals and blood pressure readings before, during, and after exercise. It can be performed on a treadmill, on a bicycle or by drug injection to reach certain workloads by the heart and blood pressure. Also known as a stress test or exercise ECG, this exam puts stress upon the cardiac muscle to see if any "hidden" problems arise as a result of the stress placed on the heart.
