Complex Exercise Testing

A complex exercise test is a test to:

  • See how well your child’s heart, lungs, and muscles work together during exercise
  • Check your child’s level of fitness

Many of the tests your child receives are performed while he or she is resting.  However, with exercise testing we get valuable information about how the body responds to different levels of exercise.
