Avatar f tn They just monitor with the baby heart rate monitor and contractions monitor...I had one done Wednesday and I have another Monday.
Avatar f tn Lol, all a stress test is, is they hook you up to a monitor and you sit there for 20-30 minutes and click a button when you feel baby move. The monitor records babies heart rate, and babies movements, it's just to make sure babies HR is responding to movement properly. Or atleast that's what the stress tests were when I had mine. No worry it won't be painful.
Avatar f tn t transfer my medical records over from CA when I moved to IL and because of that, I get 2 a week til I give birth. They monitor my heart rate, his heart rate, his movements and I have to click a button every time I feel him move. They want to make sure that he's progressing properly and the placenta is providing him with all he needs. If something was wrong then his heart rate wouldn't go up 10 to 20 BPM twice in 30 to 60 minutes, thats what they check.
7136384 tn?1390142888 Stress test or non-stress test? During a NST they just hook you up to a monitor to keep track of baby's movements and heart rate. During a stress test they actually stimulate contractions and monitor baby's response to those contractions.
Avatar f tn There is a non stress test AND a stress test.... There are different reasons for both. During a non stress test they hook you up to a monitor and just keep an eye on baby's movements and heart rate... During a stress test they hook you up to a monitor but they induce contractions to see how baby reacts.
1348086 tn?1370783185 A holter monitor is 24 hour monitoring it shows your heart rate all day. A stress test was able to help me when I was 6 years old, it showed that my pacemaker rate dropped below the standard rate.
Avatar f tn I have a stress test today they put me stripes in my belly to monitor the babys heart rate. They did it for 20 minutes and they said everything looks good they said if they see something weird you can be there for up to 2 hours.
Avatar f tn They can also monitor your bp and heart rate while on the machine. It's a good test to get done.
Avatar n tn What the cardiologist is looking for on a stress test is achieving 85% of you max predicted heart rate. Once that is met, the test is usually terminated. In you case that would be 133 BPM (220-age)*.85). Mets is simply a calculation used to determine the amount of energy expended to calculate calories burned.
Avatar f tn A stress test or a non stress test? Because they are different a non stress test is just a monitor that they put on you to measure the babies movements. A stress test actually induced contractions and is used to see how baby reacts, like if there is movement or if there is a drop in heart rate.
Avatar f tn It's called a non stress test. They put a monitor on your belly to watch the babe's heart rate. You have to push a button every time you feel movement. Your babe's heart rate should increase with movement and go back to a baseline. It basically makes sure that every thing is normal and no cord compression or stress on the babe with its movements. It's a normal test that is usually done at 36 weeks on.
Avatar f tn Then u have had a non stress test
Avatar n tn What reason would a doctor have to request a stress test on a pregnant woman on her due date, when she has no other pregnancy related (or any other) problems? She was just in for a scheduled appointment, and the doctor requested a stress test.
Avatar f tn I had it done and now that I'm near the end my dr does a short version at every checkup. They just strap monitors on your belly, the same ones they strap on you during labor.
Avatar n tn I had one every week with my son. How long it takes can depend on baby. They have to see (on the machine print out) the baby's heart rate at resting rate, active rate, resting rate. It's not hard. Typically they give you a juice to get the results. It's not really to measure your contractions, more to make sure baby is still regulating their heart rate.
Avatar f tn When using EKG and blood pressure monitoring alone the test is variously called a cardiac stress test, exercise stress test, exercise treadmill test, exercise tolerance test, stress test or exercise ECG test. Heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, EKG, and how tired you feel are monitored during the test.
Avatar f tn Take a book or something they just monitor contractions n baby heart rate n movement
143123 tn?1274300825 LoL I've heard of playing with your nipples to bring on labor supposedly but not for the non-stress test. =) I have to start going when I hit 32 weeks but basically what it is they put a belt around your waist to monitor the baby's heart rate and you have to sit there for like 1/2 an hour. I had it done with my son and it's not bad just kinda boring sitting there.
Avatar f tn m a 20 yr old female I have problems with SOB, chest tightness, palpitations, dizziness, all with a high heart rate. I went to the doctor and was ordered a 48 holter monitor. I was told I had runs of SVT on the monitor and that I needed a few more tests. So I had an exercise stress test done. I only walked for 4 minutes before my heart rate was 190. I had to get off the treadmill right after that. Should I be worried about this? Any ideas of what could be causing this to happen to me?
Avatar f tn I had gestational diabetes and my baby was measuring big so I had one done. Its to make sure the baby is moving properly and heart rate is good.
Avatar f tn s heart rate. When the baby moves their heart rate should raise. So it monitors the baseline rate. Then the rate it changes to when he moves around. They just want to make sure it doesn't drop.
Avatar m tn Probly I guess ill go back and see the doc even tho he told me i had a heart blockage and didnt cardiac cath after he told me my stress test was blockage and i was clear. Hmm maybe that did it caridac cath...
1895646 tn?1321904894 t complete the answer to your question, I was never told what my heart rate got to during the test, what i was giving you was the home monitor, pressure good fast heart rate, ongoing problem even upon rising in the morning after a nights sleep.
Avatar f tn I had a stress test done last year and you must close to me in age because our target HR's are close. I'm interested to see what your response will be because I've been told & read 2 different things. My BP went from 130/70 - 150/90; and hr from 74 - 154 in 4:55 and my doctor told me that was fine and nothing to be concerned about, what did your doctor say?
Avatar f tn Anyone know?
Avatar f tn t really be SVT if it stops, maybe NSVT (non-sustained) but if you are concerned you should have a Holter monitor test. Has your doctor mentioned this possibility?
Avatar n tn What did her heart rate go up to? Sometimes a piece of clotting material can be lodged free from inside the heart when it works hard, of course causing risk of stroke. I am relieved it was only a mini stroke but they should investigate this much further.
Avatar n tn The stress test will be monitored for heart rate and blood pressure by a tech and a doctor will be on site. I had a treadmill stress test and the pace and elevation of the track was gradually increased. If and when you have any discomfort or the monitor indicates unacceptable parameters the test will be discontinued. I never got to any running phase with my stress test. The test was discontinued after 7 minutes...
Avatar n tn What is a non stress test Nd what do they do I have two before I am induced
