A treadmill exercise test is used to determine the effects of exercise on the heart. Exercise allows doctors to detect abnormal heart rhythms and diagnose the presence or absence of coronary artery disease.
This test involves walking in place on a treadmill while monitoring the electrical activity of your heart. Throughout the test, the speed and incline of the treadmill increase. The treadmill test takes about 45 minutes to complete. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes that are suitable for walking on a treadmill. Following the test, you will be asked to lie down. Your blood pressure, heart rate, and ECG will be monitored for three to five minutes after exercise. The data will be reviewed by our cardiologist after the test is complete. Then the report will be handed over to you.
