Exercise ECG (Ergometry)

An exercise ECG (i.e. cardiac stress test) is an important cardiac examination whereby the patient's level of exertion is gradually increased while sitting or reclining in a special exercise apparatus (a so-called ergometer). In addition to the cardiac waveform, blood pressure and physical well-being are constantly monitored. If desired, we can also conduct the exercise ECG on a treadmill or rowing machine. If you prefer a performance test, however, we usually recommend spiroergometry because it enables us to assess your cardiovascular system even more precisely.
