Dr Naeem Tarenn in office

Dr. Naeem Khan Tareen American Board-Certified cardiologist with over 45 years of experience and Chief of Cardiology and his team of fully licensed and experienced Doctors and Nurses consider your overall health in determining whether a heart stress test is right for you. This determination includes your:

 

  • Age.
  • Family history of heart disease.
  • Sex.
  • Health history.
  • Level of physical activity.
  • Symptoms.

Risk factors like smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

If the results are normal, your heart is pumping as it should and there is adequate blood flow. What this means for your health depends on why you underwent stress testing:

 

  • Heart disease evaluation: Symptoms are not due to a heart issue. You may need other evaluations to pinpoint the cause. For example, some people with anxiety experience chest pain and a racing heart even though their heart is healthy.
  • Exercise or surgical planning: Your heart is healthy enough to start an exercise program or for you to undergo surgery.
  • Heart disease monitoring: The treatments you are receiving are right for your needs. Your heart is capable of keeping up with your body’s demands.

Abnormal results may mean you have heart disease. For signs of mild heart disease, healthcare providers may recommend lifestyle changes (like smoking cessation or an exercise and weight loss program) and medications to treat your diabetes, blood pressure or cholesterol to lower the risk of it worsening.

If abnormalities occur during the early stages of the test or affect large segments of heart tissue, additional tests may be necessary. These include:

  • Cardiac catheterization.
  • CT coronary angiography.
  • Nuclear stress test.
  • Stress echocardiogram.
