Cardiology: Invasive Exercise Testing for Evaluation of Diastolic Function

This test is to find out if your heart functions normally during exercise. While you are laying down, you will perform exercises such as lifting small weights with your arms. This exercise may make you short of breath of a short period of time.

Heart pressures are then taken before, during and after the exercises. The results of the test will help your healthcare provider choose the best treatment for you.
