Stress test heart rate target

Common Questions and Answers about Stress test heart rate target


Avatar m tn I only walked twelve minutes before my stress test was stopped. But I reached my target heart rate. I felt extremely exhausted until my pvcs surpressed at a heart rate of 150 and then I felt GREAT until I stopped and as my heart rate went down then the pvcs started again. Your doctor should have explained anything that may have been concerning during the stress test.
Avatar n tn It certainly is, if you reached your target heart rate. When I have had stress tests, I've reached my target heart rate in less than four minutes and problems were found (and fixed). What was found during your stress test?
Avatar f tn Just after the test started, I started getting very severe pain in my legs. My heart rate only went up to 112 beats per minute when they injected the thallium. I had to stop the test within 3 minutes of starting it because of the pain in my legs (approx. 30 seconds after injection). I got the results of the test on Saturday.
Avatar n tn What the cardiologist is looking for on a stress test is achieving 85% of you max predicted heart rate. Once that is met, the test is usually terminated. In you case that would be 133 BPM (220-age)*.85). Mets is simply a calculation used to determine the amount of energy expended to calculate calories burned.
Avatar m tn I just completed a tread mill stress test and a nuclear stress test. Briefly, the results are: 1) attained 100% target heart rate, no chest pains, no arrhythmia 2) LVEF is 56% 3) Moderate size infereior ischemia 4.) ECG is positive for ischemia at good workload (reached heart rate of 143). I've formed a preliminary impression from my research on the Internet, but I would appreciate professional feedback. I am scheduled for a heart catheterization. Thank you.
212161 tn?1599427282 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 m tn I am a 39 year old female. I had a stress test the other day and met my target heart rate in 1.49 minutes. My ? is what does that mean? I don't go back to my cardiologist for a couple days and I am wondering if anyone else has had this issue? Thanks.
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 Your maximum predicted heart rate is 220 minus your age. To be a diagnostic test, your heart rate needs to meet 85% of that number. Your weight should not affect anything. These tests are often done on people with obesity. The goal will be to get you to reach 85% of your maximum predicted heart rate, but they will not push you past what you are capable of doing.
Avatar n tn I think what is most important in a stress test, is evaluating how hard your heart can work before problems occur, and identifying those problems. It is also important that you CAN reach your optimum, or there is definitely something amiss. I had no idea it was on a time based thing, to me that would be like a race. Every stress test I've had, the operator has always said "ok I will now speed it up a bit more" or "It will now increase in incline".
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 f tn re saying, but the Cardiologists I have worked with usually try to keep the heart rate during a stress test at 85%, which is enough to get sufficient information even when they are looking for arrhythmia, even more so as a higher heart rate could be dangerous in such a scenario. The fact that they offered to allow her to go on would make me think they were not concerned about any findings of an arrhythmia.
Avatar f tn I had a catheter ablation in 3 areas in 2014 had few problems still so they installed a loop recorder and continued my cardizam. well last Thursday i had a stress test everything was going good my target rate was 159 once i was in third stage my heart rate finaly reached 156 then my heart heart droped in seconds to 68 and i passed out was very thirsty, sick pain in stomach, face numb, and head pounding. Why did this happen?
Avatar m tn 7.60. The resting heart rate of 114 bpm rose to a maximal heart rate of 184 bpm. This value represents 91% of the maximal, age predicted heart rate. The resting blood pressure of 127/72 mmHg, rose to a maximum blood pressure of 143/76 mmHg. The exercise test was stopped due to a Target heart rate achieved. I wasn't allowed to play any competative sports and do a long runs. Is this a normal test result? Can I play sports?
Avatar m tn Using the results of a stress test, says, your doctor can appropriately recalculate your target heart rate. Read more: Beta blockers are used to treat conditions such as high blood pressure and migraines. Doctors aren't sure exactly why some beta blockers cause weight gain. It could be that beta blockers slow your metabolism.
Avatar m tn I am 62 years old. During Stress Test I was stopped at 136 bpm as the Dr. said Target HR is achieved. The MET was 7.7. Is it a reason to worry? What should be ideal MET for a person of my age?
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?
1364359 tn?1282693483 That means you can achieve a heart rate of 190 while doing moderate to heavy exercise. Your target HR would be around 150-160 for your age. You should achieve your target heart rate slowly. The fact is that brisk walking will be sufficient to loose weight but slowly. Until you achieve target heart rate you would not loose weight more than a slow pace. Please add some jogging to your brisk walking schedule.
Avatar n tn I have also purchased a heart rate monitor and use this to monitor my heart rate. A good way to figure your target heart rate (THR) is 220- your age. This would equal 190. This is your maximum THR and should only be reached on occasion and should not be used for training purposes (in other words sustaining your heart rate at this rate for a prolonged period of time). You may look into purchasing Sally Edwards' book Heart Zones- Heart Rate Monitor Guidebook. They have it on Amazon.
Avatar m tn just wanted to make sure nothing big was going on with my heart. I had the stress test and all was good except for mild LVH, which my dr. explained was from the high BP. My BP is now very much under control with the minimal of medication, thank goodness. My question is when the cardiologist measured my EF it was like 80%. I read somewhere that it needs to be no more than 75%. Would my higher number be because of the stress test?
Avatar n tn t precise, and sometimes the peak exercise heart rate is affected much more than is the resting heart rate. An exercise stress test is the best way to establish a new target heart rate on beta blockers. Regarding the lower Bp; When you are lying down you increase venous capacitance, which decreases preload on the heart, decreased filling volumes leads to decreased contractility via the Frank-Starling equation, and thus decreased cardiac output, leading to decreased blood pressure.
