Question Chemically Induced Stress Test

Can someone tell me about how long this kind of test takes from beginning to end?

Re: Chemically Induced Stress Test

From memory the test itself probably takes about 5 minutes, the longest part is having to answer questions, having your chest shaved (if you're male ) and connecting the monitor wires ... so maybe 30 minutes all up.

Re: Chemically Induced Stress Test

My husband just had one done a few months ago and it took just about 25-30 minutes. As Vyking said, the prep is longer. If your going for one, plan on being there about an hr.

Good luck...JJ...
