This test can show the motion of the heart’s walls and the heart’s pumping action when it’s stressed. It can show a lack of blood flow that isn’t always seen on other heart tests. The echo is performed just before and after the exercise.

A DBA stress echocardiogram is another form of stress echocardiogram. However, instead of exercising to stress the heart, the stress is obtained by giving a drug that stimulates the heart and makes it “think” it is exercising.
