Heart Test

If you have heart issues or are suspected of having a heart condition, your doctor may order an array of tests. Heart tests give you and your doctor more information about the condition of your heart and can help you find out which treatment(s) may be best for you. But what’s their purpose and what should you expect?

 

Note: If you are taking medication for your heart, it is important to talk to your doctor, nurse or other health professional about whether you need to stop taking these medications before having a heart test, and how soon you should start taking it again after the test.
