Be more specific: What type of cardiology test?
Dr. Orlando Deffer
Specializes in General Practice
Test : There are many tests done in cardiology and diffetent degree of abnormalities ; please be more specific and what kind of test.
Dr. Francesco Rotatori
Internal Medicine 11 years experience
There is a problem: 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.
Dr. Mark Balek

Abnormal test: 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.
Dr. Diane Minich
Family Medicine 37 years experience
Which test?: There are many tests, so it is impossible to give an answer to this vague question.
Dr. Frank Amico Jr

Depends: It depends what test you're talking about. An abnormal test is a very broad statement. Do you know what test it was?
Dr. Christian Assad
Cardiology 14 years experience
Depends: 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
Dr. Carlos Orrego

Stress: 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.

Cardiology testing: 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.

Probably not free: Carlos, most of the medical publications are by subscription, therefore you should pay an annual fee. You might be able to search some abstracts online. As far as medical book suggest check on some web sites you should be able to buy a used one. Sometimes libraries when they replace the old addition they give them free to anyone who is interested.
