Safe and comfortable heart testing
In order to assess your heart’s health more accurately, your healthcare provider may decide that some special tests would be helpful. He or she may refer you to Huggins Hospital’s Cardio-Pulmonary Department. We want you to feel safe and comfortable before, during, and after your test, so, in addition to the explanation your physician will provide, the Cardio-Pulmonary Department staff members are here to answer all your concerns, carefully describing what you can expect at each point in the testing process.

- Cardiac Stress Testing
