Elevate Your Heart Health

Exercise stress tests have become a cornerstone in the prevention, diagnosis, and management of heart-related ailments.

An exercise stress test helps determine how well your heart responds during times when it is 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.

The death rate in Canada is 2.9 times higher among adults aged 20 and over with diagnosed heart disease versus those without.

Exercise Stress Tests

An exercise stress test is a very common test that is performed to learn:

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

These tests make it easier for healthcare providers to identify and evaluate certain heart issues, such as problems with your muscle or valves, adequate blood supply to your heart muscle, and electric stability of your heart at rest and during exercise.

Cardiac stress tests help healthcare professionals determine whether you need additional – often more invasive – testing to confirm a diagnosis or if treatment might lower your heart attack risk and make you feel better.
