What is a stress test and why does my cardiologist near me want to perform it?

A stress test is performed to monitor how your cardiac muscle is pumping during physical activity. Exercise makes your heart pump harder and faster, and a stress test can show if there are problems with the blood flow during exercise. The test usually involves the patient walking on a treadmill or riding a stationary bike while your breathing, blood pressure, and rhythm on monitored. If cannot perform a physical activity your doctor will give you medication that mimics the effects of activity. It is performed to help aid in treatment decisions, determine the health of the cardiac muscle, or diagnose the severity of an existing issue.

The following illnesses can be diagnosed using a stress test:

  • Coronary Artery Disease – the coronary arteries are the major vessels supplying the cardiac muscles with nutrients, oxygen, and blood. If the arteries are damaged, then CAD can develop. Damage usually occurs when cholesterol deposits begin to build up.
  • Diagnose arrhythmias – which is an irregular beat
  • Guide treatment for disorders – it helps your healthcare provider determine if your current treatment is working
  • It can also be used to check the health of your heart before surgery for valve replacement or a complete transplant.

What is congestive heart failure?

It means the cardiac muscles are not pumping oxygen rich blood to the rest of your body very well. CHF happens due to the weak pumping motion; fluid begins to build up in your lungs and other body tissues. CHF develops slowly because your body tries to make up for the weaking of the muscles and the secondary effects that happens from the weak pumping. Treatment options include lifestyle changes, medicine, and surgery.
