Service Description

What is an exercise stress echo and how is a stress echo done? An exercise echo, also known as a stress echo, combines a normal echo (heart scan), with an exercise test with bicycle. What can such a cardiac test reveal? Well, the test helps doctors to find the cause of symptoms (usually chest pain or breathlessness) during physical stress or exercise. Usually you should stop your B-Blocker or other medicines lowering your Heart Rate (pulse) 2 days before the test. Please ask your Doctor or Dr Kosta before your appointment.
