A Diagnostic Stress ECG recommend for a number of reasons:
- To diagnose conditions such as coronary artery disease (a chronic disease in which there is a “hardening” or atherosclerosis of the arteries) in patients with chest pain. Coronary artery disease can be diagnosed through an exercise stress test if it is causing cardiac ischemia (in which the heart is not getting enough oxygen-rich blood) and/or arrhythmias (abnormal heart rhythms).
- To diagnose a heart-related cause of symptoms such as chest pain, shortness of breath or lightheadedness.
- To determine a safe level of exercise among heart patients who wish to increase their level of physical activity.
- To screen for coronary artery disease in selected high-risk patients who do not have symptoms. General screening, however, is not recommended.
- To gauge exercise capacity in heart failure patients who are being considered for a heart transplant.
- To check the effectiveness of a balloon angioplasty (a procedure in which plaque in the arteries is pushed back against the artery walls to make more room for blood flow), or other procedures.
- To predict future risk of dangerous heart-related conditions, such as heart attack.
