    Cardiac stress test (on a stationary bicycle or a treadmill)

    See available time slots

    A cardiac stress test is a diagnostic measure to assess the condition of the cardiovascular system and determine the causes of cardiac arrhythmia, chest pains and other cardiac complaints. Cardiac stress tests are also used to evaluate treatment outcomes in patients with cardiovascular and respiratory problems. With a cardiac stress test, we can assess the performance capabilities of healthy individuals, identify the initial capabilities of someone taking up training and suggest optimal training heart rate and exercise options based on their heart rate.

    How is the cardiac stress test performed?

    The test is performed for people weighing up to 140 kg. To perform a cardiac stress test, the patient is asked to expose their upper body. Women can wear a bra. Electrodes are attached to the patient’s chest and a cuff is placed on the upper arm. During the test, an ECG is recorded, blood pressure is measured, and the patient’s general condition and any complaints that may occur are monitored. At the end of the test, recovery after exercise is assessed.

    Good to know:

    • Wear loose, light sportswear that does not interfere with the movement of the legs.
    • Take your usual medications, unless your healthcare provider has advised otherwise.
    • The test is performed wearing athletic shoes (in the absence thereof, closed, low-heeled shoes are also suitable).
    • Avoid eating a heavy meal for three hours before the test. You are allowed to have a light meal and drink fluids.
    • If you wear glasses, be sure to bring them with you so you can monitor the scale.
    • If possible, please bring with you the results of previous ECGs and stress tests (the physician has access to results that have been uploaded to the e-health environment).
    • There is a changing room and a shower (including a towel) on site.

    With a referral from a family doctor, the cardiac stress test is free for you. The family physician who referred you for the examination will pay for it through the Health Insurance Fund.
