This three-page handout helps people prepare for a stress echocardiogram, or stress echo, which combines a stress test and an echocardiogram to assess how well the heart works under stress. It explains that the test is done with either exercise or medicine, and contains check boxes where a health care provider can indicate which stress test is ordered. The document contains guidelines to help the patient prepare for the test, and provides a brief explanation of what will happen during the echocardiogram, with separate descriptions for the exercise stress test and medicine stress test.
