Echocardiogram: An echocardiogram (echo) is a graphic outline of the heart's movement. During an echo, ultrasound from a hand-held transducer placed on your chest provides pictures of the heart's valves and chambers and helps the sonographer and doctor evaluate the pumping action of the heart. This test takes approximately half an hour. You will be required to lie on your left side for the majority of this test.

Stress Test: A stress test shows how your heart works during physical activity. Because exercise makes your heart pump harder and faster, an exercise stress test can reveal problems with blood flow within your heart. A stress test involves walking on a treadmill while your heart rhythm and blood pressure are monitored. This test takes approximately half an hour. As you are on a treadmill, appropriate footwear and clothing are required. 

Exercise Stress Echo: This diagnostic test includes an echocardiogram (echo) before and after an exercise test. In most cases, the test is carried out to assist in diagnosis of coronary artery disease. This test takes approximately 1 hour. As you are on a treadmill, appropriate footwear and clothing are required. 

ECG: An electrocardiogram (ECG) involves electrodes  placed at certain spots on the chest, arms, and legs. The electrodes are connected to an ECG machine by lead wires. The electrical activity of the heart is then measured and interpreted. It will show how fast the heart is beating, the rhythm of the heart beats and the strength and timing of the electrical impulses as they move through the different parts of the heart.

HeartBug Monitoring: A small external event monitor to provide ECG monitoring from 1 to 4 weeks.
