Stress MUGA

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This three-page handout helps people prepare for a stress MUGA, which is a test using x-rays with intravenously injected contrast to check how well the heart pumps at rest and during exercise. It contains check boxes where a health care provider can indicate if an exercise stress MUGA or a medicine stress MUGA is ordered, and clarifies what the patient should wear and how long the test will last. It includes guidelines to help the patient prepare for the test, and provides a brief explanation of what will happen during the test, with separate descriptions for the exercise stress MUGA or a medicine stress MUGA. The document recommends that those with allergies and women who are breastfeeding, pregnant, or think they might be pregnant should tell the staff before the test.
