This includes how well you're able to breathe and how effective your lungs are able to bring oxygen to the rest of your body.
Your doctor may order these tests:
PFTs are also known as spirometry or lung function tests.
An electrocardiogram (ECG / EKG) is an electrical recording of the heart and is used in the investigation of heart disease. It is a graphic display of the electrical activity of the heart. An ECG may be done as part of a routine physical exam. It may be repeated any time there are questions about the working of your heart.
You will be brought to the ECG department in the centre. The technician will ask you to take off your clothing from the waist up, put on a gown, and lie down on a bed. The technician will place a small electrode on each of your arms and legs and across six areas on your chest. You need to lie still for the minute or two that it takes the machine to make a record.
A stress test, sometimes called a treadmill test or exercise test, helps physicians find out how well the heart handles stress. As the body works harder during the test, it requires more oxygen and the heart has to pump more blood. The test can show if the blood supply is reduced in the arteries that supply the heart. It also helps doctors know the kind and level of exercise appropriate for a patient.
A person taking the test is hooked up to equipment to monitor the heart, walks slowly in place on a treadmill, on which the speed is increased for a faster pace and which is tilted to produce the effect of going up a small hill. The test can be stopped at at any time if necessary. Afterwards, the patient will sit or lie down to have the heart and blood pressure checked.
The patient's heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, electrocardiogram, and how tired one feels are monitored during the test. There's very little risk in taking the test in healthy persons - no more than if a person walks fast or jogs up a big hill.
