Abnormal Stress Echocardiogram
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

Many things. : The echocardiogram or heart ultrasound, gives an accurate picture of the heart's anatomy. An ekg demonstrates the cardiac rhythm. A holter moniters the cardiac rhythm over time- say 12 or 24 hours. These measure different aspects of heart function and are helpful in assessing heart function thoroughly. ...Read more
