Cardiopulmonary Exercise Stress Test

The Cardiopulmonary Exercise Stress Test looks at your heart, lungs, and muscle response to exercise. It provides important information about what limits your ability to exercise.

  • How do you compare to other people of your same age and gender?
  • Are you efficient in your exercise?
  • Do your heart and lungs respond normally to exercise?

With this data, your doctor may be better able to diagnose and treat your symptoms. As needed, it can also assist in setting exercise guidelines.
