A cardiac stress test presents minimal risk. Complications can include:
- Developing chest pain
- Developing an irregular heart rhythm
- Having a heart attack (extremely rare)
Technicians are alert for any signs of heart or lung problems. They are prepared to take immediate action if complications develop. A doctor (usually a cardiologist) will be readily available during the stress test as well.
Call Your Doctor
After the test, call your doctor if any of the following occurs:
- Chest pain
- Pounding in the chest
- Dizziness or lightheadedness
- Feeling extremely tired or having trouble breathing
In case of an emergency, call 911immediately.
