Mommy Moments: My First Treadmill Exercise Stress Test

mommy moments

Last November 5, 2011, I finally had my first Treadmill Exercise Stress Test done at the Heart Station of Makati Medical Center (MMC). I said “finally” because this has long been overdue, two months overdue, to be exact. Blame that on my busy work schedule. LOL! Nope, I don’t have a heart problem. My cardiologist just wanted to check the effect of exercise on my heart.

Treadmill Exercise Stress Test provides information on adequacy of blood and circulation of oxygen of the heart during physical stress. The procedure may also reveal important abnormalities of heart rhythm and blood pressure.

While doing the test, ECG electrodes were attached to my body. My heart rate and blood pressure were being monitored, too. I was only able to finish four out of seven stages because I was already running out of breath then. My total exercise duration was 12 minutes.

The results showed no abnormalities in my heart. The results also revealed that my exercise capacity is high. Thank heavens!

And do you know what I was thinking as soon as I finished doing my first Treadmill Exercise Stress Test? Nope, it’s not the research I needed to do on rv loans. The treadmill test made me really hungry, and I was actually looking forward to our “second breakfast” that day. Our destination was MMC’s Floating Island Restaurant.

    That sounds fun, and enduring, may be? Lol. I always felt walking on a treadmill for 2o minutes is very enduring for me. Haha. I know, I am so lazy! Congratulations on having a healthy heart! 🙂
