Treadmill Test/ TMT/ Stress Test

A stress test, sometimes called as a treadmill test or exercise test, helps physicians find out how well the heart handles stress. As the body works harder during the test, it requires more oxygen and the heart has to pump more blood. The test can show if the blood supply is reduced in the arteries that reaches the heart. It also helps doctors know to determine the kind and level of exercise appropriate for a patient.
