Stress EKG

Alternate Names : Stress Electrocardiogram, Exercise Treadmill EKG, Stress Test

Stress EKG | Preparation & Expectations | Results and Values

What do the test results mean?

Normally, the heart rate goes up as workload goes up. The EKG will show a pattern that is normal for the individual's age, sex, and level of physical conditioning. Abnormal results may indicate coronary heart disease. The test may also show exercise-induced cardiac stress. It also may show an arrhythmia, which is an abnormal heartbeat.
