Hi well come to Hcm.
stress test is mainly done to asses coronary heart disease, and at times to induce
arrhythmia. If your pace maker is not working but if your heart beat is maintained need
not worry at present. Echo will give idea about anatomy and physiology of heart,and
valves, and pumping capacity of heart. If your doctor has not bothered you much
about your stress test need not worry, get done it than, your doctor will explain you
in detail. thanks
