Evaluating the Heart’s Reaction to Stress

Also referred to as an exercise test or “stress test”, treadmill stress testing can help to assess heart performance during exercise. Your child will have his or her vital signs closely monitored while walking then running on a treadmill at various speeds and inclines. The information collected from this test allows us to evaluate the heart under stress so we can use that information to diagnose potential issues, as a guideline for exercise, or to identify the need for other treatments and procedures.
