Preparing for Your Cardiac Stress Test
Unless your doctor tells you otherwise, continue taking your medications as usual. If you have been instructed not to take your medications, tell the technician before the test. The cardiac stress test will take approximately one hour.
- Please register 15 minutes before your scheduled appointment and bring your physician order.
- Wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing and tennis shoes or walking shoes. Do not wear one-piece undergarments.
- Don’t eat food, drink caffeine or smoke for at least two hours before the test.
Cardiac stress tests are performed by appointment only.
