Myocardial perfusion pet stress test with persantine had caffiene within 24 hours of test ?

No need to worry: You didn't mention whether the test was positive. Even then caffeine induced heart rate increase should not cause any problems. Hope you don't smoke. ...Read more

Stress (Definition)

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

My cardiologist ordered a myocardial perfusion pet stress test with persantine, so what is it?

My cardiologist ordered a myocardial perfusion pet stress test with persantine, so what is it?

Stress test : This is a chemical stress test. You will be given a medication and then pet scan of your heart will be done to evaluate the blood flow in different parts of the heart. If there is any significant blockage, it will show up as a defect in the images. ...Read more

Myocardial bridge (begin) stress test Bp 222-mod reflux- chest flush&hair loss same area-deep chest pain -can't exercise or lay on left side w/o pain

Myocardial bridge (begin) stress test Bp 222-mod reflux- chest flush&hair loss same area-deep chest pain -can't exercise or lay on left side w/o pain

More information : Please be more specific about the myocardial bridge, stress test and blood pressure. A blood pressure of 222 on a stress test is not that alarming, but at rest it is a major problem. Was the myocardial bridge diagnosed with an angiogram? ...Read more

Normal stress but abnormal myocardial moderate inferior partial reversible perfusion. What means. How stress test normal and rest abnormal.

Normal stress but abnormal myocardial moderate inferior partial reversible perfusion. What means. How stress test normal and rest abnormal.

Abnormal stress test: A "myocardial perfusion defect with reversibility" indicates that there is something reducing the blood supply to the heart muscle (eg, atherosclerosis causing a blockage in the coronary.) The exercise EKG (stress test) can appear normal even if myocardial persuion is not. Additional testing, such as a catheter angiogram, may be needed. ...Read more

Mild reversible myocardial ischaemia involving basal segments of inferior and inferolateral walls its dangerous conclusion of stress test or good ?

Mild reversible myocardial ischaemia involving basal segments of inferior and inferolateral walls its dangerous conclusion of stress test or good ?

It is not: normal, reversible ischemia means that there are areas of your heart that do not get enough blood flow under stress, but do get enough flow at rest. You need to see a cardiologist for further evaluation/treatment. ...Read more

Is it true that a myocardial wall motion study is the same as a nuclear stress test?

Is it true that a myocardial wall motion study is the same as a nuclear stress test?

Part of study: Wall motion a small part of myocardial perfusion study. Important findings of perfusion are related to ischemia and infarction of myocardial muscle. Spect (tomographic imaging) obrtains images in sagittal, coronal, and transaxial projections during stress and resting phase. 2 phases compared.. Technetium99m and thallium201 are isotopes. Also see cardiac chamber size and cardiac ejection fraction. ...Read more

What does a positive stress test for pro-vocable mayocardial ischemia mean?

Blockage: It means that when your heart needs it, your arteries are incapable of delivering blood evenly and sufficiently to all of the heart muscle. This often means blockages in the heart arteries. Your cardiologist can tell you more. ...Read more

What does a non-stress test consist of?

What does a non-stress test consist of?

Imaging: Heart Imaging tests (nuclear, ultrasound & MRI) are a non-invasive way of evaluating heart function performed in conjunction with physical activity (treadmill or bicycle) or using non physical means (using intravenous medication eg. dobutamine, lexiscan, adenosine or dipyridamole). All the above provide indirect information on blood flow, presence of scars and the strength of heart contractions ...Read more

Stress Test (Definition)

A stress test is a cardiac test which can include walking on a treadmill and monitoring your heart while you are walking. They can also inject you with a nuclear material and do a more comprehensive scan on your heart to check for blockage. They can also do a chemical stress test which omits the need to ...Read more
