Exercise Stress Ecg
Stressechoresults: abn stress ECG at 9.1mets, normal exercise stress echo with no evidence of stress induced myocardial ischemia. What does this mean?
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more

What does no evidence of stress induced myocardial ischemia mean after stress echo but abnormal exercise stress at 9.1 mets? Reached 94% of hr.
Talk to your doc: The "stress" portion of your stress test appears to be normal, as you reached a reasonable stress (9 mets), reached target heart rate and no ischemia was demonstrated. However, there may be "resting" abnormalities on the echo, hence it was called abnormal. Discuss with the ordering physician. ...Read more
Is athletes heart causing my palpitations during exercise? Resting hr 50 ,clear echo and 24hr holter. I do lots of endurance training.
Pvcs, : Endurance runners can have skipped beats and irregular heart beat such as atrial Fibrilation during or at the end of an exercise bout . They do not usually have any clinical significance except if the runner has a lot of symptoms or interfere with overall performance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I had an ECG, exercise stress ECG, 48-hr holter ECG, and an echo. Would prolonged QT show up on all of those tests?
Majority: Yes, if you are concerned for prolonged QT or there is a family history, all of those tests except for an echo should show prolonged QT syndrome. An echo measures the function of the heart. Prolonged QT is calculated from an ECG looking at the part of the heart that makes up the QT interval in the heart beat. An ECG, stress ECG and Holter ECG should be able to pick it up. ...Read more
For what?: These tests provide different information and have different indications. Stress tests are to look for evidence to support a diagnosis of symptomatic blocked coronary arteries. Holtor is used to evaluate for dysthymia. Echocardiogram is useful to look at the heart valves and other features. Choosing the right test depends on what symptoms you are having. Discuss this with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Felt nauseous and short of breath during exercise. Diagnosed with GERD after normal chest x ray, ECG echo stress test. Panic attack GERD or heart?
Most commonly GERD: with normal CXR,ECG and echo, findings are less likely cardiac. Exercise has been known to trigger reflux. Figure out if its your routine (crunches on a full stomach), or diet (aggravating foods, coffee, OJ). Try some PeptoBismol before exercise to see if chnages. Keep a diary of when it happens, how you feel, and what you had to eat that morning. It will give you and your doc the best picture. ...Read more

Hi! Can exercise cause heart flutters (PVCs)? I've had echo, EKGs, Holter, event, but no stress test. Cardio cleared me. What is this? Thx
PVCs: PVCs can occur at any time. They do not necessarily occur due to exercise. They are more interesting when they occur very very frequently, especially after someone has had a heart attack. Your normal testing indicates you are in good shape! http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/premature-ventricular-contractions/basics/definition/con-20030205 ...Read more
Does normal Troponin blood level, chest X-Ray, EKG & cardiac exercise stress test rule out any cardiovascular cause for my chest pain?
Stress test stated moderate to severe ischemia anterior/apical. Heart cath says stress test false p,no blocks,but mild elevated EDP/LBBB. Is this causing dyspnea and exercise intolerance? Help?
Yes: Elevated EDP indicates left ventricular dysfunction. You did not report what your ejection fraction (EF) is - it's crucial. Your EDP may be elevated from systolic and/or diastolic dysfunction. Moreover, LBBB causes dys-synchrony which further compromises LV function. Both abnormalities you list will result in impaired functional capacity manifested as exercise intolerance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Electrocardiogram (ecg, ekg) is a print-out of the electrical forces detected by electrodes on the chest wall, as electricity travels through the heart with each heart beat. The electrodes are placed in different positions, and each position "sees" the electrical activity of the heart from its own vantage point. Abnormalities in signal detected at chest surface ...Read more
