Stress Test of the Heart
This three-page handout helps people prepare for a stress test, also called an exercise, heart, or cardiac stress test, which uses medicine or exercise on a treadmill or exercise bike to assess how a person's heart works under stress. It contains check boxes where a health care provider can indicate if a medicine stress test or an exercise stress test is ordered. 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 a stress test with medicine and a stress test with exercise.
