Common Questions and Answers about Stress test treadmill speed


Avatar f tn Thanks, what exactly can they find from stress test, and are certain abnormalities only detected from this type of stress test? I am also on cardizem. Thank you.
Avatar n tn I had a stress treadmill test done last week. Well, sortof !! It was done by internal Medicine dr, and he had told me to lay off my beta blocker the day before, so he could get the heart rate up. Weeelllll. I did, and when she started the treadmill, she must have been a "looney" because it was going up a steep hill- incline. (I'm 51 next week) I started having bad PVCs right away because she didn't give me time to warm up on level, slow, etc...
Avatar m tn in relation to a standart treadmill use in gyms , phase 1 of the standart treadmill stress test starts at a 10% grade or incline what is the numerical setting on a standart treadmill 1-15 thanks
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 Hello , Thank you so much for your reply , waiting around for the results is also such an anxious time , can you still get a treadmill test which shows up a problem or is a positive test , if the test person has not seen anything to stop the test ?
Avatar n tn The numbers you found may be typical, but if they are too hard for your the person managing your test will not ask you to do'll do something less. It is a stress test, not a stressed-out test.
Avatar m tn I recently had a treadmill stress test. It was explained to me that there would be 5 parts of 3 minute duration each totaling 15 minutes. Each part would be increasingly difficult since each succeding part has the treadmill speed increased as well as the incline of the treadmill. I was told that being 64 my goals were 85% pulse of 132, 90% of 140, and 100% of 156. After the first part of 3 minutes, my pulse was about 130 amd half way thru the second part my pulse was 157.
Avatar n tn My nuclear stress test results were as follows ver batim. I do not know what it means, are the results acceptable, good very good etc. What does this say about the blood flow to the heart muscle ? "injection of Myoview nuclear tracer & resting images obtained excercised on a treadmill for 5 min 34 sec. to 10.
Avatar m tn I have A Fib and I could not do the stress test with the treadmill so the doctor wants to give me an injection (dobuytamine hcl/250 and sestamibi(2) in order to race my heart to get it up to a certain speed and I am concerned since I have the A. Fib and take medication for it (Diltazam). Is it dangerous for me to have the test??
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 n tn I had an echo stress test where the treadmill speed and incline followed standard Bruce protocol, but each stage lasted only 2 minutes instead of 3. The person who administered the test seemed very knowledgeable, so I assume the shortened stages were intentional. Are the results as valid as they would have been with standard 3 minute stages? I completed stage 4 and was told everything looked good.
Avatar n tn He went for 2yearly check up and had a ech v02 stress test.. He lasted 9mins in tredmill.. Is this normal as he said it was going to fast for his legs to keep up but he was not having trouble breathing his legs just would not keep up with out trying to run on the machine.. He is concerned as he does at least 30 min on the one at home with the incline and speed at 6.5 k/phr. We have to wait 14 days for the results. He has been ok for the 2 years.
Avatar f tn I am scheduled for my nuclear stress test Nov 11. Ech on Nov 8th. Will either of these tests show if I have peripheral artery disease. I have constant squeezing (feels like blood pressure cuff) with numb tingeling fingers in left arm. Also my legs hurt all the time, sometimes major cramping in my calves. And yesterday groin pain affecting walking all day. (I am female.
Avatar f tn A stress test is not a test of your physical fitness, it is a test of your cardiovascular under a work load. The work load is set to do just that, bring you HR up to a load level. They will hook you up to an EKG (maybe more, I don't remember) and start you walking at a slow speed, say 2 to 3 mph. They will then watch your heart traces (EKG) and slowly increase you load, most likely by increasing the incline. They will ask you how you feel, you are not expected to work to exhaustion.
Avatar f tn I had never had a problem with the treadmill test. With the med stress echo, my heart was beating faster than I think it ever has.... My question is....can they speed up the rate of a heart too much during this test? If so, could the spasming be a result of that? I am not out to sue anyone....just want a straight answer. Could they have given too much med?
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.
253496 tn?1235231285 I've had humpteen and as long as you don't take a beta blocker the night before, all will be well. My former stupid cardiologist had to clear me for sinus surgery. I had no idey it would involve a stress test. He said "can you take the stress test today?" I says sure why not. I forgot that you always skip your dose of a bb the night before a stress test, but the **&^%% doctor should not have.
1425157 tn?1311655279 i had a reg stress test this am and i was able to get to level 3-3 raises of the incline and speed- and finally reached my target of 185 bpm,, but about 3 mins before that was reached i wanted to stop!!! was feeling short of breath mostly slight lung burning feeling and a tad light headed is that normal???my heart rate seemed to come down to normal in about 7 or 8 minutes and they let me go-- if they saw something dangerous would they have told me??
Avatar m tn My wife took the same test and had no discomfort (she does not have heart desease). I'm do for another stress test next month (but a treadmill type instead of nuclear). Should I be concerned. By the way, the test results were OK.
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 f tn My stress test involved indurance testing measured by Bruce protocol measured in METs. But my stress test was also interested in obtaining information from a prior heart attack and stopped after several minutes. You were being tested for arrhythmia, and it is my understanding an EKG is only effective for arrhythmia diagnosis if the arrhythmia happens during an EKG. I'm not sure just reaching your heart rate limit is enough, and to reach your limit in 3 minutes is very quick.
Avatar n tn When? Under what circumstances? Had you taken a prior standard ecg treadmill test without the radiation scan? Your test results appear normal, though I wonder why they stopped the test where they did? Were you exhausted, at the end of your limit?
11849443 tn?1441306441 I have never had a treadmill stress test done, here they do the test on a stationary bike. But it's more or less the same. However, I have no idea why they seem to stop you at a calculated target heart rate (85% of calculated max). For the test to be somewhat reliable regarding ruling out CAD and arrhythmias, the test must (according to my EP who I definitely trust) go on until max heart rate is achieved.
Avatar f tn My fears were unfounded. The echo and stress test went very well. Millie, a colleague I worked with 25 years ago, did the echocardiogram and I enjoyed catching up with her. Lori (the woman who administered the stress test) was an absolute peach and answered all my questions very patiently. She also told me to call her anytime if I had any questions. I felt so much better after talking to her. She did say that I was "throwing PVC's all over the place" though.
Avatar n tn I have been told everything seems fine. My family doctor has recommended a stress test on the treadmill. I was told it would be very strenuous ,all uphill. I am so afraid to do this because of what I read. I know one person that had a retinal tear while doing a fast steep incline on the treadmill.I feel like the doctor will think I'm a hypochondriac since all has been well with the retinal checks but I know my eyes are going through changes and I don't really think I have a heart problem.
967168 tn?1477588089 Perhaps it is time to do an echocardiogram, isotope stress test and high speed CTA scan. This is what I would certainly ask my PC or cardiologist to preform. These test will give you all the information needed to assess your current problem. Your symptoms suggest transient ischemic heart problems and I wouldn't hesitate to find answers.
Avatar n tn Never had any symptoms of heart problems. Just had a Thallium Stress Test as a precautionary measure due to family medical history. The stress test results showed an evidence of ischemia of basal septal wall. Cardiologist is recommending catheterization. Is it necessary? Some doctors say absolutely not. Use aggressive medical treatments to control cholesterol and blood pressure with 80 mg. aspirin daily.
Avatar n tn Given this, however, stress tests are never 100% accurate (such accuracy is beyond the capablities of a stress test). Thus, an angiogram is the next step after a positive stress test to directly image the coronary arteries. Without an angiogram, your physicians will never be sure what's going on. There are no other non-invasive tests that would help at this point.
