Cardiac stressing agents
A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.
A cardiac stressing agent is used to stimulate the heart and increase workload.
They are used in a cardiac stress test which monitors the heart’s ability to cope with stress, starting from rest and then with an increasing workload. Once the cardiac stressing agent is administered the heart is monitored by echocardiogram or isotope imaging for any changes in blood flow through the heart muscle tissue or any structural differences.
This enables the diagnosis of coronary artery disease.
