In cardiology, as other specialties, we generally perform diagnostic test to support clinical suspicion. In every test we have a set of normal findings that we expect to find if everything is normal. If some of this findings are different, we classify the test as abnormal. Not always that means that something needs to be done, but it says that the result is not as expected in a normal individual.

It's a too broad of question to answer. If you have specific test in mind then it will be easier to answer as there are quite a few tests in cardiology.

There are many tests, so it is impossible to give an answer to this vague question.

It depends what test you're talking about. An abnormal test is a very broad statement. Do you know what test it was?

Depends on what cardiology test you are talking about. This can go from abnormal physiologic function to structural heart disease. Terms are very broad. A particular test is needed to give a better explanation

Do you mean stress test? There are different tests: regular treadmill, exercise nuclear and chemical stress. Usually we look for symptoms, ekg changes and abnormal tracers uptake in the heart.

There are several different "cardiology tests". Treadmill, nuclear perfusion, echo, angio, ecg, troponin, etc. if you are more specific it would be easier to explain the normal parameters. Hope thats helpful.
