What is an exercise stress echo and how is a stress echo done? An exercise echo, also known as a stress echo, combines a normal echo (heart scan), with an exercise test with bicycle. What can such a cardiac test reveal? Well, the test helps doctors to find the cause of symptoms (usually chest pain or breathlessness) during physical stress or exercise. Usually you should stop your B-Blocker or other medicines lowering your Heart Rate (pulse) 2 days before the test. Please ask your Doctor or Dr Kosta before your appointment. Dr Kosta was the first Cardiologist in the West London area to set up and run a Rapid Access Chest Pain Clinic with e-bike stress test – a non invasive, painless and community-friendly procedure for discovering Coronary Artery Disease -narrowing in the vessels of your Heart - which can cause Heart Attack. With the e-bike stress echo test you can avoid needles or tubes into your veins and you can avoid any side effects that Dobutamine Stress Echo (DSE) can cause.
