Exercise ECG

In contrast to a resting ECG, an exercise ECG is recorded during exercise such as on an exercise bike or treadmill with load increasing in increments or continuously until your individual maximum has been reached.

An exercise ECG records heart performance as well as possible changes in the cardiovascular system; this gives us information on blood pressure and pulse behaviour, and serves as an important diagnosis for cardiovascular disorders at seventy percent sensitivity for the presence of coronary heart disease, as well as exercise-induced cardiac arrhythmias. The acute stress phase lasts about fifteen to twenty minutes.

The exercise ECG is part of a sports medical check-up benefiting beginners and ambitious sports people alike, and can be combined with spirometry or a lactate threshold test for individual pulse ranges in training.

Please bring the following to your examination:
