What Is a Stress Test?
Heart stress tests are diagnostic tests designed to evaluate the heart’s performance under physical conditions such as exercise by measuring heart rate and blood pressure. Cardiac stress testing, which includes electrocardiogram monitoring, is extremely useful in determining how well your heart can pump blood, measuring the amount of blood that circulates through your heart during physical activity, and determining whether you have any blockages that may put you at risk for a heart attack.

Who Needs Stress Testing?
A stress test for heart evaluation may be used to assess symptoms typically related to heart disease, determine how well a patient is recovering from a heart condition, or monitor treatment progress. Your heart doctor in NYC can also use a cardiac stress test to adjust current heart failure treatment or evaluate arrhythmias. They are also recommended for patients with heart disease prior to surgery or starting exercise programs. Your cardiologist may recommend a cardiovascular stress test in Manhattan for the following reasons:

-To evaluate how well your heart valves function;
-To determine if your heart is receiving sufficient blood flow during increased loads;
-To check if there are any abnormalities with your heartbeat;
-To test for coronary heart disease and risk for heart attack;
-To determine the root cause of breathing difficulties or chest pain;
-To assess how well your ongoing treatment for heart disease is working;
-To develop an exercise program that’s safe for you.

Heart stress tests are also performed in individuals with chest discomfort, heart palpitations, indigestion, shortness of breath, a history of smoking, high blood pressure, diabetes, a family history of heart disease, high cholesterol, or an abnormal level of blood lipids, and those with dizziness.
