Has anyone had a cardiolite stress test? I'm having one tomorrow morning & I'm slightly apprehensive?

Can you tell me what I can expect and if there are reactions to the cardiolite? Fear of the unknown I guess.

you will be fine. the cardiolite you receive may make you feel flushed but other than that nothing to worry about. the test will take about 3 hours.

There are differn't kinds of stress tests. Cardiolite is the nuclear medicine that you recieve. You will get an injection when you first get there, you will wait a while then get the first set of pictures. After that you will either have a treadmill stress test or a chemical induced one. With the treadmill you will walk until you get to your target heart rate, when you get to your target (goes by your age) you will get the second dose of cardiolite you will walk another min or so and then be taken off. If you are doing the chemical induced one (there are diff kinds) you will probably feel flushed, some pressure in your chest, and might have some shortness of breath. Dont let it scare you. You are hooked up to an EKG machine the whole time. Half way through the chemical induced one you will get the second dose of nuclear med. After you are done with this part you will go back on the table for a second set of pictures. The first one is without the vessels opened up, the second one is with them opened up. The 2 are compared to see if the vessels do open up or not. Don't be scared. It is not that bad, and someone is with you the whole time. Good luck!
