What does a stress test actually test?

Answer

A stress test is usually performed on a treadmill where the heart rhythm is monitored while you exercise. The main purpose of a stress test is to see if there is any evidence of blocked arteries. If there are blockages present, not enough blood gets through during exercise and changes will be seen on your EKG. A nuclear scan is done as well, to gather additional information about the blood flow.
