    There's nothing to it.  You lie on a couch and they stick some tiny plastic cups on your chest with jelly.  Then they take them off again and give you a paper towel to wipe off the jelly.  It doesn't hurt.  Afterwards they show you a piece of paper with wiggly lines on it and talk a load of technical babble.  Look interested and nod.

    It's probably the most common heart test you can have and takes about five minutes.

    You will have this test done about 50 times in your life, not necessary to be paranoid.
