Stress Testing

Home » Services » Stress Testing

A stress test, sometimes called a treadmill test or exercise test, helps your doctor find out how well your heart handles its workload. As your body works harder during the test, it requires more fuel and your heart has to pump more blood. The test can show if there’s a lack of blood supply through the arteries that go to the heart.

 

Taking a stress test also helps your doctor know the kind and level of physical activity that’s right for you.

We have been providing cardiology services in the Lafayette area since 2001.
