If you have underlying health conditions in your heart, this test will help to find these before they become fatal.

What Does a Stress Test Do?

What Should I Expect to Happen During an Electrocardiogram?

When you go to get an electrocardiogram at Dr. Rush’s office you will be monitored during an activity, such as running. With running, for instance, a treadmill will be set up along with heart monitoring machinery. Your heart rate will be tested at your resting rate, during exercise, and then again after you complete the exercise. An electrocardiogram, or EKG, will give Dr. Rush the information he needs to proceed with treatment for heart conditions, such as high blood pressure or an irregular heartbeat. Without a well functioning heart muscle, your overall well-being is at risk. You should seek testing immediately if you think you have a heart condition. An EKG test can be particularly useful for early detection of heart problems and related diseases, such as chronic pulmonary heart disease (COPD).
