Does anyone have experience with one of these?  I recently had a complete Pulmonary Function Test, and now my pulmonologist says she wants to get this stress test to see if I should have oxygen with me when I exercise. I walk about a mile and a half a day, slow pace approx. 2 mph  (my lungs are very compromised with COPD, she was impressed that I could do that even).

 

Anyway, I was wondering about the stress test and what it entails.  The PFT was certainly not the funnest thing I've done all year, but not painful so there's that.

 

oh p.s. she ok'ed me for Pulmonary Rehab which I am looking forward to.
