    Do physicians have to be present during a treadmill stress test

    Do physicians have to be present during treadmill stress tests? Or is it rather facility policy or only for certain patients at risk?....I'm 21 years old have a history of hypertension & tachycardia, I'm on medication. Recently I developed symptoms such as shortness of breath, lightheadedness, and near fainting episodes....my doctor sent me to the cardiologist, he didn't say much except my ekg showed sinus arrthyhymia & we will do further testing. When I got home I looked at my patient portal & patient problems said hypertension & mitral regurgitation, I never knew of the regurgitation....but long story short my cardiologist ordered me to have a stress test, echo & 24 hour holter monitor. He ordered me to have a stress test with one of the cardiologists at the facility to be present. Is this normal? Facility protocol, or only certain patients? Thanks for your input

    Whenever I had a stress test done ,the cardiologist was right there as it has to be monitored as you go along. It's perfectly routine.
