It also highlights irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias), previous heart attacks (myocardial infarction), blocked coronary arteries, high blood pressure (hypertension), heart valvular diseases and structural heart defects.

▸ Stress Test (Add On)

An ECG (electrocardiogram) records the electrical activity in your heart. During the stress test, you’ll be asked to exercise, typically on a treadmill, while you’re hooked up to an ECG machine.
