ECG Stress Test... apakah itu?

Korang pernah buat ni? Sapa pnh buat angkat tangan! Ha... mesti x pernah kan? Hehehehhe... Ok, meh sini I bgtau.  Ni la dia carta untuk stress test.  Nak tengok how ur condition is when ur heart needs to work  at a maximum workload.  Nak tgk heart u stress x.  Heart yg stress tau... bukan u yang stress... jangan confuse kat situ.

Ok, don't ask me how to read the chart above cos i pun x paham.  My concern was just the report page where cardiologist concluded whether my result is normal or otherwise.

Had to do this stress test as my blood result indicated that my cholestrol is high.  Hence I was asked to do the stress test to check the condition of my heart.  Risau giler nak kena buat stress test ni sebab kena lari atas threadmill and I haven't done that for quite some time.  Plus i just underwent a csec 2 months ago so mmg takut la kot2 jahitan belum baik kan.  

Anyway, how the stress test works, there are 5 stages all together. 1st stage - slow walk, 2nd stage - fast walk + incline, 3rd stage - brisk walk/slow jog + increase incline, 4th & 5th stage mmg dah lari pecut kot.  Fortunately, masa 3rd stage dah pass ie achieve the target heart workload so x payah la buat 4th and 5th stage tu. yippeee!  And the interval between each stages is 3 minutes.  Not so bad actually.  Alhamdulillah, DH paksa gi gym tiap2 hari before the test untuk get back my stamina. Tq DH for forcing me! Lol.

Anyhoo, it's good to know that my heart is working and responding normal towards the workload.  Anyway, ni part of the medical check up that I had to undergo untuk process recruitment nak kerja kat Company tu.  Alhamdulillah, am fit to work! (dah dpt offer letter pun *big grinn*)
