TMT IS ABBREVIATION FOR TREAD MILL TEST.
USUALLY THE SYMPTOMS AND SIGNS OF HEART DISEASES GET MANIFESTED IF PHYSICAL STRESS IS IMPOSED,AND RECOVERY TIME IS LONGER AS OPPOSED TO HEALTHIER INDIVIDUALS.
THIS IS PRINCIPLE OF T.M.T .
USUALLY PATIENT FOUND NEGATIVE ON RESTING E.C.G ARE TESTED ON T.M.T ON WHICH PATIENT HAS TO RUN ON TREADMILL ON FIXED PROTOCOLS LIKE MODIFIED BRUCE.E.C.G IS RECORDER REGULARLY.ANY VARIANT E.C.G IS ANALYSED AS DIFFERENT HEART PATHOLOGY.

IN SIMPLE WORDS WHEN YOU DO HARD PHYSICAL ACTIVITY ,YOUR HEART RESPONDS IN RESULT OF IT.ANY ABNORMAL RESPONSE IS OBTAINED FROM E.C.G AND SUGGEST PATHOLOGY.
HOWEVER,RESTING E.C.G IS MUST BEFORE T.M.T,BECAUSE IF RESTING E.C.G SHOWS POSITIVE RESULT IT SHOULD NOT BE IMPLIED BECAUSE IT CAN PROVE FATAL AND DANGEROUS.
