Treadmill (TMT) Test

4 mins read

Living in Chandigarh, the City Beautiful, means embracing an active lifestyle. But even with a healthy routine, hidden heart issues can lurk beneath the surface. That’s where the Treadmill (TMT) test comes in, your window to understanding your heart’s true performance under stress.

What is a Treadmill (TMT) Test?

The Treadmill (TMT) test in Chandigarh, also known as a stress test, is a non-invasive procedure conducted at Prime Diagnostic Centre, Chandigarh to assess your heart’s ability to handle physical exertion. It involves walking on a treadmill with increasing speed and incline while your electrocardiogram (ECG), blood pressure, and heart rate are monitored. This helps doctors diagnose potential problems like:

  • Coronary artery disease (CAD): Narrowing of the arteries supplying blood to the heart.
  • Arrhythmias: Irregular heartbeats.
  • Angina: Chest pain caused by inadequate blood flow to the heart.
  • Heart failure: The heart’s inability to pump blood effectively.

Benefits of a Treadmill (TMT) Test:

  • Early detection of heart disease: Identify potential blockages or abnormalities in your heart function before symptoms arise.
  • Evaluate fitness levels: Assess your heart’s response to exercise, helping you tailor your fitness routine for optimal results.
  • Pre-surgery clearance: Ensure your heart can handle the stress of surgery.
  • Monitor existing heart conditions: Track the effectiveness of your treatment plan for established heart conditions.

What to Expect During the TMT Test:

  1. Preparation: You’ll be asked to wear loose clothing and avoid heavy meals and caffeine beforehand.
  2. Resting ECG: Your heart rhythm is recorded at rest.
  3. Walking on the treadmill: You’ll walk on a treadmill with gradually increasing speed and incline.
  4. Continuous monitoring: Your ECG, blood pressure, and heart rate are monitored throughout the test.
  5. Recovery period: You’ll rest after the test while your vitals are monitored.

Requirements for the TMT Test:

  • Wear loose, comfortable clothing and shoes.
  • Avoid heavy meals and caffeine for 4-6 hours before the test.
  • Inform your doctor about any medications you’re taking.
