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
I had a cardiac echo stress test recently, results were normal but they did find a single ruptured tendinae. What is chance of valve issues later?
Ruptured tindinae: Likely not. However ask your provider if there is any mitral regurgitation . You should also ask if you have an audible mumur associated with the valve, and if so that would require periodic surveillance with physical exam. You probably would not need another echo unless abnormal murmur appeared or you developed symptoms ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Normal D-Dimer lab, cardiac echo shows mild RCA blockage , physican ordered a nuclear stress test . I am a Paramedic ,can you code with a stress test?
Unlikely: The long answer is that you have a stressful job and you are frequently in situations that cause emotional and physical stress. You should be fine. They will be monitoring you during the test. Also, if the test were that risky, we would not do it so often. Even if you do code. You will be on a monitor in a medical facility with the ability to resuscitate. ...Read more
A year ago i had ekg, echo, stress test etc and dr told me everything was good wit my heart. Today i was riding my bike and got 3 skipped beats, is this normal or shoulf i go get more tests done?
No unless it worsen: Skipped beats, or more correctly, premature beats with a pause afterwards, are very common and usually not significant.

If they are aggravated by exertion, this may be significant as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

ECHO is also known as Echocardiogram. An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen ...Read more
Cardiac echo is also known as Echocardiogram. Cardiac echo is a somewhat redundant term for "echocardiogram." during this painless procedure, harmless sound waves are passed into the chest and reflected back, providing a detailed image of the heart, measures of the flow of blood within it, and information about certain structures which surround ...Read more
