Assess Your Heart’s Health: Expert Treadmill Testing for Optimal Fitness and Wellness.
TMT (Treadmill Test) is a type of stress test used to diagnose cardiovascular disease by evaluating the heart’s response to exercise. Our clinic offers diagnostic services with TMT to help detect heart problems at an early stage and prevent serious complications.
During a TMT, the patient is asked to walk on a treadmill while connected to an electrocardiogram (ECG) machine. The speed and incline of the treadmill gradually increase, putting more stress on the heart. The test typically lasts for 20 minutes, during which the ECG records the heart’s electrical activity and monitors any changes in heart rate and rhythm.
TMT is a safe and non-invasive way to evaluate the heart’s response to physical activity. It helps detect any underlying heart problems, such as coronary artery disease, that may not be apparent during a regular ECG or physical exam. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent serious complications, such as heart attack and heart failure.
Before the TMT, our medical team will conduct a thorough medical history and physical examination to ensure that the test is safe for you. You will be asked to wear comfortable clothes and shoes suitable for walking on a treadmill. The test will be conducted in a controlled environment, and our medical staff will monitor you closely throughout the test to ensure your safety.
After the test, our team will review the results and provide you with a detailed report. If any abnormalities are detected, we will recommend further diagnostic tests and treatment options.
At our clinic, we are committed to providing high-quality diagnostic services with TMT to help our patients maintain a healthy heart and prevent cardiovascular disease. Contact us today to schedule an appointment for a TMT test.
