Re: stress test query

No, it's not. You will be on a treadmill wired up. You will begin a slow walk and every 3 minutes or so he will increased the speed. He would like to get you up to your maximum heart rate, which is 220 minus your age. He is constantly monitoring you, blood pressure, heart, etc and asking you if there is any pain. Of course he would stop the test sooner if he suspected anything wrong.
