Hi, recently I am feeling like losing strength and heart failure, the doctor said he would have to conduct some tests for coronary artery disease. Which tests are performed? What kind of tests are these?

To investigate heart’s strength different tests are performed in whose main principal is to stress the heart under controlled conditions. Like this, presence of flow-limiting blockages in the coronary arteries can be detected. The range of at least a 50% reduction in the diameter of one of the three major coronary arteries is mesured. Two basic types of stress tests- exercise cardiac stress tests, that involve exercising the patient to stress the heart, and -physiologic stress testing in which heart is chemically stimulated, actually stress conditions are mimicked. Physiologic stress testing is performed for patients who are unable to exercise.
