Exercise Stress Electrocardiography

Exercise stress electrocardiography is an outpatient test which looks at the electrical pattern of the heart, also known as an electrocardiogram (ECG), in response to stress.

The most common form of stress test for the heart is exercising on the treadmill. The ECG is recorded before, during and after exercise under controlled conditions by attaching wires to the chest using electrodes.
