Stress Echocardiography

You will be exercising for a short period on a treadmill while your heart rhythm and blood pressure are monitored. Ultrasound images of the heart will be taken before and after exercise.

You may be asked to stop taking beta-blockers 48 hours prior to exercise, unless otherwise directed by your referring doctor.

• Allow up to 1 hour for the appointment

• Wear comfortable loose clothing and sports shoes or flat-soled walking shoes
