The Stress Test
The stress test, or exercise electrocardiogram (ECG), is an important screening tool to identify those at risk of cardiovascular disease, such as coronary artery disease or irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia).
The test is carried out by trained and qualified health professionals in a controlled environment, where the effect of external stress on the heart is assessed.
At Beacon Hospital, the stress test is an important tool to aid in the diagnosis of cardiovascular disease, or to guide its treatment. It is also offered in our Health Screening & Wellness Centre to screen for heart disease.
