• TMT (ETT)

An exercise stress test determines how well your heart responds during times when it's working its hardest. It typically involves walking on a treadmill or pedaling on a stationary bike while hooked up to an EKG to monitor your heart’s activity.

A stress test is a very commonly performed test to learn:

  • How well your heart pumps blood.
  • Whether your heart is receiving an adequate blood supply.
  • How you perform on physical activity (riding a treadmill or stationary bike) compared with other people your age and sex.
  • If your symptoms (chest discomfort, shortness of breath, feeling like your heart is racing or even dizziness) can be reproduced while performing physical activity.
