A stress echocardiography, also called an echocardiography stress test or stress echo, is a procedure that determines how well your heart and blood vessels are working.
During a stress echocardiography, you’ll exercise on a treadmill while your doctor monitors your blood pressure and heart rhythm. When your heart rate reaches peak levels, your doctor will take ultrasound images of your heart to determine whether your heart muscles are getting enough blood and oxygen while you exercise.
This non-invasive procedure can discover the deadly disease, under medical staff monitoring with sufficient medical equipment.
Although the procedure carries certain risks, but it helps the patient to prevent coronary heart disease, since patient may not have symptoms at rest.
