TMT, also known as a Tread Mill Test, Stress Test, or Exercise Test, is a test that determines how the heart performs when it is pumping quickly and hard. During these periods, doctors use a stress test to assess if the heart is receiving enough blood.

Preparation :--

* You can continue to receive your regular prescriptions, but if you take any heart prescriptions, your doctor may urge you to alter or discontinue medications before the examination.
