Stress ECG

Stress ECG at Yorkshire Clinic

What is a Stress ECG?

A stress ECG, also called an exercise stress test, cardiac stress test, exercise ECG or stress test, is a test that allows doctors to see how your heart reacts to activity.

It records your heart’s electrical activity, blood pressure, heart rate, breathing, and how tired you feel whilst exercising.

Sensors called electrodes are placed on your chest and arms or shoulders and are connected to the ECG machine. You will be asked to exercise on a treadmill or exercise bike. The activity level starts low and increases. The ECG machine will record your heartbeat and heart waves in an electrocardiogram graph.

Towards the end, you may breathe into a mouthpiece that measures the air you breathe out.
