In brief: 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.
