Stress Echo Testing / Stress Testing Instructions

What is a Stress Echocardiogram?

A Stress Echocardiogram, or Stress Echo, is a special type of Echocardiogram, or ultrasound of the heart, which produces images of the heart, at rest as well as after stress, triggered by exercise on a treadmill or a medication that causes the heart to beat as if exercising. The study uses ECG monitoring, along with ultrasound, to see changes in the wall motion of the heart and show how effectively the heart is pumping, especially under stress, and if there is a lack of blood flow.
