An Exercise Stress Test is to assess how your heart responds to physical exertion. The procedure takes approximately 30 minutes and involves walking on a treadmill.

Throughout the test a nurse or a technician will supervise you. Your pulse, blood pressure and heart rhythm will be monitored throughout the procedure. You will be asked about any symptoms such as shortness of breath, chest discomfort or dizziness.

You will be asked to sign a consent form prior to proceeding with the test.

Please advise staff if you are diabetic. Do not stop any medications prior to the test unless you have been advised to do so by your doctor.
