Stress test: Reaching that heart rate is considered a maximal stress test(220-52 times 85%). Such a rise in systolic bp is common at peak exercise. Whether you did well depends on ekg readings and nuclear distribution patterns during the exercise. The cardiologist who monitored your test has all that information.
