Common Questions and Answers about Stress test treadmill ekg


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 I am getting a nuclear stress test done on Monday. I wish that they could have done more testing at the time however the cardiologist seemed frustrated and angry, maybe not with me. I am really unsure why, actually. I'm very concerned and it will be good to get to that bottom of it. I have increased my fluid intake.Thanks for your response.

Avatar f tn Hi, I recently was admitted into the ER for shortness of breath, swelling and heart palps. The ran blood work, did a chest x-ray, did an EKG and a Stress test with the treadmill. All came out normal however all symptoms are still there. My doctor spoke with a friend/cardiologist who wants to see me and do a Echo. My question is, wasn't all that enough checking for the heart? Would would an Echo tell that all the other testing didn't? and...
Avatar m tn I had my stress test done today and was wondering if I had a typical experience. I had the test done because I almost fainted a month ago doing cardio at the gym. The first did an EKG (lying down). I then went onto the treadmill. It started off slowly. Every 3 minutes they increased the speed and incline of the treadmill. I was supposed to get into a range of 159 to 180 bpm. I went up to a fast walk and everything was fine.
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 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 m tn My primary care physician is sending me for a cardiac stress test. I was debating on whether I should ask for a cardiopulmonary stress test instead. I have difficulty breathing and shortness of breath. Also, I have low blood oxygen (High Hemoglobin and High Hematocrit) and low carbon dioxide. I know the cardiopulmonary stress test measures gas exchange during exercise. I just don't want to have to do both tests at some point, if there is nothing wrong with my heart.
Avatar m tn Would SVT show up on a treadmill test if I was hooked up to a EKG? My heart rate shot up to 217 BMP while I was on the treadmill.
Avatar f tn On my stress test results it states: 1mm horizontal ST depression noted at peak exercise which is positive for Ischemia. Is that very bad or possibly not so bad?
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 I presume that you had an EKG treadmill stress test, wherein they made you run on a treadmill at escalating speeds till your maximum potential. If you did not have symptoms while running or sustained changes on your EKG, most likely you do not have any significant issues with your coronary arteries.
Avatar f tn Certain systemic disorders like anemia, diabetes, vitamin deficiencies and thyroid disorders can cause these symptoms. So, besides EKG and treadmill test, lung function tests could further help in evaluation. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
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 For the last 15 years (since my first remembered EKG) I have had an inverted or flattened T wave. During a stress test this past week, my EKG was fine until I exhibited an ST depression of 1mm at 130bpm. At 142 to 164 through stages 3 through 5 of the protocol, it went to 1.5mm. I had no chest pains and had no problem on the treadmill.
431644 tn?1236899573 Heres the clencher I had several EKGs plus one XRay EKG is a stress test at rest....a treadmill stress test is supposedly 64% efficient thats not a good margin and a basic EKG or several of them is no less efficient now heres the kick in the *** I had a heart attack AFTER these tests .
Avatar n tn Now they want to do a stress test on tredmill. If the EKG is positive, does this mean I DO have heart disease and possible leaky heart valve as I was told? I am 52 year old female who weights 340 lbs. I am very nervous now. I'm I really sick?
Avatar m tn I recently took a treadmill stress test and nuclear stress test. Basically, the conclusions are that I have: 1) moderate size inferior ischemia 2) LVEF is 56% 3) ECG is positive for ischemia at a good workload. No chest pains, no arrhythmia. I've research the Internet and have reached a tentative first impression, but would appreciate any professional feedback on the above three conclusions. I am being scheduled for a heart catheterization. Thank you.
Avatar m tn He said my tachycardia may be because I have extra adrenaline (he seemed really convinced I have anxiety) however I explained to him some of my weird heart episodes occured during school breaks where I am most care free and I am sure it was not because I was stressing, anyways, He did not want me to pause taking metoprolol on the treadmill stress test scheduled next week, wouldn't this skew the results?
Avatar m tn I have two artificial hips and yet doctors keep pressing me, when I do a stress test, to run on a treadmill. (Age 55). Those are impact exercises - bad for fake hips. The last time I did this I had to yell "STOP THE TEST NOW!" to get them to shut it off. They wouldn't listen when I said it normally. Did they think I was kidding? So now it's a year after I had a Stent put in to fix two blockages with one Stent. And now doc wants to do a nuclear stress test.
Avatar f tn My rx says adenosine nuclear stress test. Adenosine is used in lieu of exercise.
Avatar n tn If your EKG was abnormal before the test, it would have been more helpful to have a nuclear stress test. If your EKG changed during the stress test without pain, the fact that you had pain before may encourage you to be proactive and ask for a nuclear stress test. Nuclear GXT pushes the accuracy into the 90th percentile.
Avatar f tn Went for a treadmill stress test two days ago. For some reason I was really anxious about the test (any medical test seems to send my anxiety level through the roof) and by the time I arrived at the clinic was quite upset. The technician - I explained that I was in rough shape emotionally - said my heart rate was already "through the roof" and asked me to take some deep breaths which didn't help. She went ahead with the test and I waited to speak to the Cardiologist.
