A stress test, often referred to as an exercise or treadmill test, is a test used by our cardiologists to help determine how well an individual’s heart can handle the ‘stress’ or workload put on it. As a stress test is performed, the patient’s heart has to pump more blood in its effort to handle the work strain at hand. A stress test identifies the level and type of activity that is best suited to our Orange patient and also provides evidence if there is a lack of blood supply that flows through the arteries of the patient’s heart.
Why Does an Individual Need a Stress Test?
Dr. Levine and the doctors here at Docs Urgent Care use exercise stress tests on our Orange patients who present with the following:
Your Stress Test
During your stress test, our Orange patients will be hooked to specialized equipment that monitors their heart. The patient is instructed to walk slowly on the treadmill and from time to time to breathe into a tube for a couple of moments. The stress test monitors your heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, your EKG and how tired you feel during and after the test. Dr. Levine wants to ensure all his Orange patients that there is very little risk when taking a stress test. If necessary, the test can be stopped at any time and Dr. Levine and/or a medical specialist will be on hand throughout the duration of your stress test. For more information about stress testing be sure to contact Dr. Levine or one of his dedicated staff members and schedule your consultation appointment today.
