Computerised Stress Test
A stress test is one way to determine fitness and capability. The tests can take place on a stationary cycle or on a treadmill. Stress tests also check to determine if the flow of blood to the patients heart is adequate when heart rate activity goes up. If a patient is on medication for a heart problem that occurred previously, a treadmill test can be used to evaluate how effective the heart medication is.
We have a equipped laboratory at Das Hospital to perform this test. Before a patient start the treadmill test, a technician will use an ECG test to determine the heart rate at rest before asking the patient to exercise for a treadmill stress test. The patient then begins by walking on a treadmill which leads to jogging then running.
