Exercise Stress Test

Some arrhythmias only occur while a patient is exercising. Because of this, your doctor may recommend an exercise stress test (or treadmill test). During this test, you briskly walk or jog on a treadmill while hooked up to an ECG machine. This allows your arrhythmia specialist to determine if you are experiencing any arrhythmias while exercising and also determine if you have evidence of a blocked heart artery.
