coronary artery disease in a patient with chest pain
For a more accurate diagnosis
The stress test lasts approximately 30 minutes and requires preparation so that the results are valid. You should avoid caffeine (coffee, tea, chocolate, etc.) and avoid smoking 4 hours before the test. You should wear comfortable clothes and running shoes during the examination.
The stress ECG can reveal arrhythmias or disorders of the coronary circulation that can not be identified on a resting ECG. It is important to let the doctor know if you experience any pain or other disorder that may require interruption of the test.
At Physimed, the stress ECGs are performed strictly by our cardiologists.
