Stress test systems are used in non-invasive, cardiac monitoring procedures, which primarily identify coronary artery disease. Stress tests are used to induce stress on the heart in order to check for heart disease. Heart diseases such as coronary artery blockages and arrhythmia are more easily detectable when there is an elevation in heart rate. By analyzing a patient during variations in their heart rate, a physician is able to better diagnose for the many types of heart diseases. Such tests are typically performed with the use of a treadmill or exercise bicycle in conjunction with a corresponding EKG monitor. The patient will be instructed to increase their heart rate while on the treadmill while connected to the EKG monitor through the use of electrodes as well as a blood pressure monitor. Through information gathered from blood pressure and EKG readings, a patient can be tested for their risk of coronary artery disease (CAD) and other heart related issues.
New vs. Refurbished
At Jaken Medical, we carry a wide variety of new and refurbished stress test systems for sale. While it is always nice to be able to purchase brand new equipment, the cost can sometimes outweigh the benefits. We have a large inventory of both new and refurbished equipment available for you to choose from. We also have an in-house team of biomedical technicians who service, repair, and refurbish medical devices. Refurbished stress test systems often run for much cheaper than brand new units, and they even come with a comprehensive warranty (depending on unit). We offer live technical support to all Jaken Medical customers, so you never have to feel like you’re left alone to figure out your stress test system’s functions.
