This examination allows VM-Med specialists to evaluate the contractile force of the left ventricle, the part of the heart that pumps the blood into the whole body.
Some medications (e.g. those used in chemotherapy treatment) and cardiac conditions (e.g. post-infarction aneurism, dysfunction of cardiac valves) can affect the force of this ventricle, so it’s important to properly evaluate ventricle function in order to avoid medical complications (e.g. pulmonary edema, shortness of breath).
