EKG/Stress Lab 

The Heart and Vascular Center’s EKG/Stress Lab offers several technologically advanced, non-invasive tests to diagnose heart disease, while creating as little discomfort and inconvenience for patients as possible.

Our EKG technologists measure electrical activity in the heart by placing sensors on the chest, which can detect irregular heartbeats. The lab also offers several forms of stress testing, such as exercise stress tests, stress echocardiography and chemical stress tests. These tests can help determine whether the heart is receiving adequate blood flow during increased levels of activity. 

Conditions Detected:

  • Coronary heart disease
  • Hypertension
  • Hypotension
  • Coronary artery blockages
  • Chest pain
  • Heart valve disease
  • Heart failure
