Avatar n tn I have had this type of stress test and the injection causes and immediate increase in heart rate and can be stopped immediately. I'm sure given your father's condition the cardiologist will be very involved. If they see anything that looks out of normal ranges they will stop the test immediately and the effects of the drug can be stopped like turning off a light switch.

Avatar f tn Please someone who has had a stress test via injection to speed up heart, how safe is it? I have tachycardia, meds not lowering HR and can't take treadmill stress test because of physical unfitness. Also, suffer from anxiety, stress depression etc. and feel worse everyday. Since my HR is so high already, would test put additional stress on my heart making my tachycardia worse? Thanks in advance.
Avatar f tn The third one was done last week and they chose to do the injection of med rather than treadmill. Towards the end of the test, I had heart attack symptoms ( which resolved with 3 squirts of nitro) and was sent to the hosp for an angiogram. Results of the angiogram were good , except for a 25% occlusion in a distal aeortic vessel on the back of my heart down by the apex. The Dr. said that my heart had "spasmed" during the stress test.
1076228 tn?1256348980 However, comparing the trace elements injected at rest at during the high heart rate period of the stress test may show that there is a blockage of an artery and during exercise, your heart is not getting enough blood in parts of it. The cath will give the doctor specific answers. I'd try to stress about it, but the period of time after a stress test and before a cath is always a worrisome time, I've gone through that a number of times.

Avatar n tn Myocardial perfusion scan. During this procedure, you exercise on a treadmill or pedal a stationary bicycle. When you reach your maximum heart rate, you're given the injection. Images are made of your heart shortly after exercise and also a few hours later. This test shows how well blood flows into the heart muscle and can detect narrowing of the coronary arteries (coronary artery disease). Appropriate for vessel occlusions...ischemia that may cause angina (chest pain).

Avatar n tn I can produce a numbert of different opinions what is the appropriate heart rate and so on with exercising. The best method for someone with a heart issue is to have a stress test. A stress test is oftened done for the purpose of learning the degree of tolerance/risk one can safely do. The rule of thumb stated is not recommended for someone who has heart issues. You will be safe to engage in exercising according to METs.

Avatar m tn My 83 year old grandmother had a chemical stress test about three months ago because she was so tired all the time. She was in good health otherwise. Since this test she is having terrible anxiety, describing it as feeling shaking all over on the inside. She has been on several different anxiety medicines, none of which help at all. The doctors have now been sending her to a psychologist as if she is crazy.
