Treadmill Stress Test

Featuring Dr. Brett Heilbron, MD, FRCPC, Cardiologist

Duration: 1 minute

Stress testing can be a useful tool to screen for cardiovascular disease.

I think it's much better to push an individual in a treadmill test in a supervised environment rather than find out what happens when they go up that steep hill on their bicycle, or if they get on a hockey rink and give it their all.

A heart stress test is certainly a way to to find out if there is significant cardiovascular disease. And it's a way to determine the risk and to prevent the problem before it happens.

If you have questions about cardiovascular disease symptoms, contact a local cardiologist or family physician.
