    Does anyone have information on how to do the impedance cardiac test? Or how to get the article that explains why it's important?

    I may go to my internist sometime soon and want to ask if I can get it done.

    Thanks!

    You can get an explanation at:

    The last two paragraphs, before the acknowledgements, are cautionary.

    Apparently, caffeine is to be avoided on the day before taking the test.
