Avatar n tn My nuclear stress test results were as follows ver batim. I do not know what it means, are the results acceptable, good very good etc. What does this say about the blood flow to the heart muscle ? "injection of Myoview nuclear tracer & resting images obtained excercised on a treadmill for 5 min 34 sec. to 10.
Avatar m tn I had a tread mill stress test and a nuclear stress test. Briefly, the results were: 1) reached 100% target heart rate, no chest pains, no arrhythmia 2) LVEF is 56% 3) moderate size inferior ischemia 4) ECG is positive for ischemia at a good workload (143 heart rate). I have formed a preliminary impression from my research on the Internet, but would appreciate feedback on the above 4 items. I havel scheduled a heart catherterization. Thank you.

Avatar n tn An Echo Stress Test or a Nuclear Stress Test, if the doctor is suspecting coronary artery disease. However, a regular stress may be sufficient in stable patients or those with a low suspicion of coronary artery disease who are being assessed for exercise tolerance (for example, prior to undergoing a structured exercise or rehab program). If you are/were experiencing chest pains an EKG Stress test is not reliable and probably should have had a Nuclear Stress Test.
Avatar n tn You do need to get back with the cardio and get an explanation of a one minute stress test terminated at heart rate of 144. You do not state how you felt at the time of the test termination.You are still not out very far from your heart attack; I'd go back and get some guidance.Let us know. Joan.
Avatar n tn Had a nuclear treadmill stress test done while taking the test the whole time the nurse held me up from behind 2 hands on back because i stated i had back problems and as soon as test started she began this procere is this comman practice?
Avatar f tn Iv taken a few Nuclear stress tests - in the past I can remember you cant eat anything or drink but water - I was also taken off my meds for 24 hrs before the test . It might be good to call the appointment center or doctors office and tell them - if im not too late at this ! pretty sure it will mess up your test. though some scan tests you can eat peanut butter ? guess it makes the dye show up better in the vains ? I never liked these tests ! as dyes in vains - so on..
212161 tn?1599427282 I assume you had an Echo Stress Test and not a Nuclear one. I am sure the "wiggle lines" you are referring to had nothing to do with you walking barefoot (I had them too up to the point were the ECG became unreadable and I have as yet found nobody that could/would explain this to me) and they stopped the test because you had reached your prescribed heart rate of 140 BPM - so nothing wrong with that.
Avatar f tn I have been experiencing angina for the past several months and I recently took a nuclear stress test. I can not see the cardiologist until next week so I am hoping you can shed some light on my diagnosis. " The patient reached a maximal heart rate of 154, which is 91% of predicted maximum. There is some thinning of the myocardium near the apex with small area of reversible activity in anteroseptal region.
212161 tn?1599427282 Yes, I had a nuclear stress test last year and I had no side effects whatsoever from the injected stuff. In my case it was 99m Sestamibi given in 2 different doses for isotopes 1 and 2. The doctor wanted to rule out any blockage in my arteries because the EKG was abnormal. I was very happy to be told that no blockages were detected and that everything looked pretty much normal. I must confess that before the test I was very nervous but it really turned out to be no big deal.
Avatar m tn I have no symptoms of heart problems, but I have a family history of heart disease. Is a nuclear stress test advisable or is there another test that would be more appropriate given the fact that I'm asymptomatic. I understand that the radiation exposure in a nuclear stress test is 250 times that of a chest xray. I'm concerned about the risk of exposure to that level of radiation given the fact that I have no signs of heart problems at this point.
Avatar n tn t agree on why I did so well on the stress test. Q. Can some one do this well on a stress test, ie 13.5 minutes and still have major heart problems? What's next?
Avatar f tn I had a stress test done last year and you must close to me in age because our target HR's are close. I'm interested to see what your response will be because I've been told & read 2 different things. My BP went from 130/70 - 150/90; and hr from 74 - 154 in 4:55 and my doctor told me that was fine and nothing to be concerned about, what did your doctor say?
Avatar m tn ve had three over the last 6 years, and one a few years before that when the test was called a thallium stress test...it is nuclear too, but it seems thallium is no longer used. I have no known side-effects and I have gotten two false positives. The latest one that gave this was about 2 years ago, and so I underwent a catheter study and there were no blocks. I think the bottom line is, if the nuclear stress test says you do not have blockage, you most likely don't.
Avatar n tn What can cause an artificial or a false low ejection rate on a nuclear stress test 33%?
Avatar n tn I had a nuclear stress test. Before the stress part of the test my blood pressure was 213. The Dr said to go ahead with the test. During the test, I got cold and white, was unable to function well, semi unconsciousness, tremors particularly on the right arm, speech slurred, headache in the temple and forehead, fatigue. After many attempts to clear me from these side effects, they gave me a the antidote to the medication that they used. Did I have a heart attack?
Avatar f tn I wonder why you had a stress test, some symptom trigger it? In my case I asked for a stress test to get a better number on what my maximum exercise HR should be. This lead to lots of additional nuclear and other tests because I couldn't pass the stress test when I in fact didn't have the main problem it checks for. Sorry if I wander... bottom line, see a cardiologist but if you don't have any serious symptoms I think you should think positive, nothing is wrong.
Avatar m tn Personally I really have no fait in the tredmill test. The real way to see your heart is the nuclear test. I passed the treadmill enerything was fine after the nuclear test they found I had had a heart attack. The chemical test is the same as the tredmill.
Avatar f tn My rx says adenosine nuclear stress test. Adenosine is used in lieu of exercise.
Avatar n tn Terminate stress test when blood pressure or heart rate drops...hypertension - 220 systolic or 110 diastolic especially if headache or visual changes. Patient has reached or exceeded the predicted maximum heart rate (need 85% nuclear 15-20 bpm over 85% for stress echo). The above reates directly to your question regarding hpb and hr.
Avatar m tn from there they sent me to get a nuclear stress test and that showed everything was fine, so my question is why did 2 out of 3 test were positive, should i believe that everything is fine...I am a 56 yr old woman...
Avatar n tn A normal nuclear stress test will not show blood flow through the carotid arteries of the neck. In general, a nuclear stress test accuracy rate is 85% to 90% for CAD in your heart. For the carotid arteries, the first test is usually an ultrasound, then an MRI or CT scan and the final test would be an angiogram.
213398 tn?1202670474 been complaining of chest discomfort for months now. had a stress test a year ago and told it was good. just did a nuclear stress test today. my question. i reached my target heart rate of 156 within minutes by fast walking. a year ago my target was reached while jogging on the treadmill. shoild i be concerned ? does this mean i have some heart of vascular problem if i reached the target by fast walking rather then running? i am not physically active in general .
Avatar n tn Would a clear angiogram 2.5 years ago and a clear nuclear stress test last year indicate good heart health. I sometimes get bad shoulder pain an I worry it is related to my heart.
