Avatar f tn Just had an echo stress done. Ths results showed that my functional heart capacity was 81% for my age and gender...what does this mean?
Avatar m tn I had a stress test because of SOB and high BP. My dr. 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 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 Please be aware that stress testing have a LOT of false positive results. If you were able to exercise at 13 METS and didn't have chest pain, that sounds very reassuring.
512736 tn?1211343352 By adding a nuclear perfusion study to the stress test, this limitation is minimized, and the diagnostic capacity of the stress test is greatly improved
Avatar n tn m TRYING to quit), had a stress echo last week with these results, that I hope someone can explain to me. I should add that I've had no symptoms of heart probs other that the MVP. Had an echo-stress test -- results: Resting echo overall normal left ventricular size and systolic function with an ejection fraction of app. 55% with mild septal wall hypokinesia. After exercise, images were obtained in similar planes. These revealed septal and anterior wall hypokinesia which was mild in degree.
Avatar m tn Im a 24 year old male that has hypertension since 21 and recently began having shortness of breath and chest pain which my doctor determined were panic attacks, however I was concerned whaf I suffered from was angina or coronary artery disease.
974371 tn?1424653129 1mm horizontal or downsloping ST depression with exercise . Systolic hypertension noted with stress. Poor functional capacity with markedly impaired functional tolerance. LV dilatation was none. LV function normal sized LV. Normal LV function. EF 65% at rest. EF>75% with stress. LV Ischemia was Inferobassal and inferolateral HK with peak stress. I have no idea what this all means.
Avatar m tn ....rest images (inferior wall, septum, apex), improved perfusion on stress images with persistent defect at the apex - fixed apical defect consistent with infarct scar, apical akinesia.....It seems the tests (1 and 3) indicate a prior myocardio infraction (heart attack) and heart cell necrosis (not viable). Your ejection fraction is within the normal range (normal is 50-70%) and indicates your heart's contractility strength has the ability to pump 59% of the heart's filling capacity.
Avatar m tn This can be cause by a reversible defect or blockage in an artery and is usually verified by a nuclear stress test of a cath. Also, it would appear that your exercise and oxygen uptake tolerance were decreased as well/ What did your doctor have to say? Let us know.
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.
Avatar m tn An exercise capacity of 5 METs or less is associated with a poor prognosis in subjects less than 65 years old. An exercise capacity of 13 METs indicates a good prognosis despite abnormal exercise test responses.
Avatar f tn A week and a half ago I had a exercise stress myocardial perfusion scan done. Some of the results are as follows: 1. Good functional aerobic capacity patient achieving 10.1 METS. 2.At peak exercise ekg reveal sinus tachycardia with lmm horizontal ST depression . . .consistent withy stress-induced ischemia. 3.Normal SPECT myocardial perfusion scan . . .4. Transient ischemic dilation of the left vetrical with TID of 1.42 suggestive balanced ischemia. 4.

Avatar n tn s really important for the doctor to correlate your history, body type, exercise capacity, other test results and arrive at an actual (not computer generated) diagnosis. What did your doctor say about the findings?
