What to Expect During Your 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 stress echocardiogram will take about one hour.
- Please arrive 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.
- Please don’t eat food, drink caffeine or smoke for at least two hours before the test.
Stress echocardiogram tests are performed by appointment only.
