Stress test results echocardiogram

Common Questions and Answers about Stress test results echocardiogram


Avatar f tn Hi Ken, I did see a pulmonologist last Tues and he did a pulmonary function test and I also had a chest xray, passed both these with flying colors. He asked me a lot of questions and then told me he would have me take a echocardiogram in a year to rule out PH.
Avatar m tn The nuclear stress test can provide more detail than the echo, so you get more of a whole picture of the function of your heart. Also, the nuclear test may read slightly higher than the echo, but usually not as much as 45 versus 63%. Normal EF is 50-70%. While an echo is a very good test, the nuclear test is likely more accurate. That said, they may want to keep an eye on things to make sure nothing develops.
Avatar n tn If they were suspicious of CAD, they would have pursued additional tests. Good results on an echocardiogram, nuclear stress test and home monitoring is GREAT! As for the SVT, have you tried the atenolol? Beta blockers work differently for different people. I was able to take propanolol, but could not take atenolol. Don't give up on the meds; it's just a matter of finding the one that works best for you.
Avatar f tn Hello, No one can diagnose via the Internet and without being able to review your entire history it will not be possible to give you an exact answer, however if your symptoms are mostly induced by exercise, proceeding with the stress echocardiogram is by all means the right thing to do. It will not only serve to evaluate noninvasively for ischemic heart disease (blockages in heart vessels) but also look if your moderate mitral regurgitation in not worsening with exercise.
Avatar m tn then it says normal stress echocardiogram
Avatar n tn I am a 60 year old male who just had a ECG and have no idea if the report I just received is good or bad. I belong to a HMO so the cardiologist says my primary Dr. must review the results with me, unfortunately she will not be available for 2 weeks. First I would like to say that I am in excellent physical condition (I hope) and have ran 20+ miles/wk for the last 30 years, at a quick pace.
Avatar n tn This was the findings from a stress test and mycocardial perfusion test that were done. Please explain to me in laymen terms, am I okay? I just wanna make sure. Postress SPECT images demonstrate a small zone of mildly diminished activity in the distal anteroseptal wall. A mild defect persists in the distal anterior wall on the rest examination.
Avatar f tn do you think it's worth it to get a nuclear stress test?
Avatar n tn However, just completed exercise echocardiogram at stress, positive for anterior apical myocardial ischemia. Completed through stage 5. Negative for chest pain, normal blood pressure response to stress. EF 66% at rest to 80% at peak stress. Stress ECG negative for ischemia. Normal left ventricular geometry. Normal global and regional left ventricular systolic function. Wall motion score 1.00 baseline, 1.19 at stage 5 exercise.
Avatar m tn He is not pressing however because I have no chest pain and he indicated the stress test results maybe related to the fact I have mycardial bridging. He has left it to me to decide to have another angiogram or just wait 6 months and redo thestress tests. Would appreciate advise.
Avatar n tn I just had a breathing test and the results were all close to normal for my age (49). My doctor felt the stress test result could be off because of my pacemeaker and is going to repeat the echocardiogram next week and put me on a holter monitor for 24 hours. Just before Thanksgiving I was cardioverted to shock me out of an a-fib eposide but I think I am back in it.
Avatar m tn I had a stress echocardiogram and the results were normal. I discussed it with my physician and am not concerned about medical issues. My question is about the level of fitness indicated by reaching 12.6 METS on the test and how it ranks. Where does 12.6 METS place me with respect to 64-year-old men? At what age group would a result of 12.6 METS be at the median for active men?
Avatar f tn When using EKG and blood pressure monitoring alone the test is variously called a cardiac stress test, exercise stress test, exercise treadmill test, exercise tolerance test, stress test or exercise ECG test. Heart rate, breathing, blood pressure, EKG, and how tired you feel are monitored during the test.
Avatar f tn Thank you, I am seeing my doctor in a week, I do have some Valium and they help so much, however getting more than one refill is almost impossible from my doctor,,I am going to ask to have the test repeated, I have lots of aching pain in my left thigh and back, but have a bad back, and tear in my glut muscle, if stress can cause this dimmer test to go up, well, I have been under a ton of stress,,thank you again.
Avatar f tn My mother who is 64 just received her echocardiogram results, however her Dr is not in today. It states the following for a "conclusion"- 1. Normal left ventricular size with mild wall motion abnormality and normal systolic function 2. Subtle prolapse of the anterior mitral leaflet and moderate regurgitation. 3. Mild tricuspid regurgitation. PA systolic pressure of 30mm Hg. Can anyone translate this?
Avatar n tn now I have about 15-20 a day. I have had the stress echocardiogram, holter monitor, EKG and echo. All tests were within normal limits. I felt good about the tests until my mom's friend just had a triple bypass..all her tests had been normal as well. She was having pain in her arm so they decided to do the more invasive heart test..that is when they discovered her blockage.Now I am concerned that may have missed a problem with me. How thourough are the tests I have taken?
Avatar f tn because of more scary Angina symptoms. Two days later I had a 2 day nuclear stress test and am waiting for the results. I called for results today and was told they're not done comparing them and will call me for sure with the results.
Avatar f tn However, the questions you would ask depends on your symptoms and questions related to the results of the EKG and echocardiogram. The results of the test will be commented on the report...then you may have questions for clarification if necessary. What are your symptoms? Do you have a health history of arrhythmia or shortness of breath? Prior test results if any. Are you on medication? Thanks for sharing and if you have any further questions or comments you are invited to respond.
Avatar f tn What does it mean when, during a exercise stress test (treadmill), they tell you to stop early? Is it most likely a good thing or a bad one? Details: Given a stress test for heart rate irregularities. Resting rate was around 80, and bp around 110/70. Between 3-6 min on the treadmill my bp was 170/80 and heartrate was over 140. At 7-8 minutes they told me I could stop because "they had all the information they needed." They said I would have the results in a couple of days.
