Cardiac Stress Test
2012-11-18 19:30:13

The cardiac stress test is a diagnostic test used in Cardiac pathology for the purpose of patient diagnosis. It measures the heart’s function while placing a heavier workload on the heart. The cardiologist cannot be at the patient’s side while at work, under stress, during a workout or pushed to the limit so this test mimics those activities in a controlled setting. How it is Performed The stress is created by increasing the workload on the cardiac system. This can be accomplished by...
