Pvc In Stress Test
I have had regular stress test. Nuclear stress test echocardiogram and heart catherization. All normal what's chance missed blockage or pulm htn?
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
Normal echo stress test in June. Normal EKG Lots of pvcs especially when walking. Waiting for results of holter monitor. Could I have a blockage?
Frequent pvc's at rest/active. Normal ekg's, treadmill stress test, currently wearing a 14 day holter monitor. Could my period be inducing the pvc's ?
Unlikely: When a holter monitor is used, up to 80% of apparently healthy people will have pvc's. Your normal 12-lead ekg and exercise tolerance test will exclude the presence of most underlying heart diseases which can account for frequent pvc's. Other possibilities include lung diseases, sleep apnea, nicotine, caffeine, alcohol, and other stimulants. I don't think frequent pvc's are associated with menses. ...Read more
Had echocardiogram, nuclear stress test w cardiolite, EKG and 30 day holter. Does the echo and nuclear test rule out CAD or any potential blockages?
My stress test results read " positive exercise stress test for ischemia by EKG criteria. What does that mean?
This means that the: EKG portion of your stress test had changes in the waveforms that have been known to be associated with blockages of the coronary arteries. Unfortunately, greater than 15% of the time this is inaccurate in women. Less than 5% of the time in men. This is why we always do stress testing in women along with nuclear imaging. If the nuclear imaging is negative then the EKG changes are FALSE positive. ...Read more
Many things. : The echocardiogram or heart ultrasound, gives an accurate picture of the heart's anatomy. An ekg demonstrates the cardiac rhythm. A holter moniters the cardiac rhythm over time- say 12 or 24 hours. These measure different aspects of heart function and are helpful in assessing heart function thoroughly. ...Read more

Can someone with a normal EKG and EKG treadmill stress test still have structural heart problems? Frequent pvc's. Few paired/multifocal. Will it show?
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
Stressechoresults: abn stress ECG at 9.1mets, normal exercise stress echo with no evidence of stress induced myocardial ischemia. What does this mean?
Non-Sustained Polymorphic VT in a structurally normal heart with normal baseline ECG & Normal stress test. What can it be?
Well : I can be a side effect of medications or from medication overdose or electrolyte or calcium and balance or an arrhythmia originating in the wiring of conduction system of the heart.This is a very serious heart condition can be fatal it requires the diagnosis treatment and management of a cardiologist in person ...Read more
I've worn 2 holters-30 days, other 24hrs/had a stress test/echo/ekgs/sonogram of the heart/chest xrays/bloodwork, all normal.Whats best test for palps?
Palpitations: Palpitations have many causes from anxiety through anatomic and physiologic abnormalities. The feeling of bounding usually relates to the volume of blood pumped with each palpitation. There is no simple single answer for the question. If you're bothered by the feeling should consult a dr. To see if the problem can be clarified. It sounds like you've had a good workup and don't need to worry. ...Read more

What's the difference between a lexiscan stress test & a stress echo dobutamine test? I have had the lexiscan before.
Nuclear/ Echo stress: Lexiscan stress generally performed with nuclear isotope, which shows blood circulation(perfusion), comparing with medication lexiscan(stressing heart) and at rest. Dobutamine echo we are looking at wallmotion of heart with medication dobutamine( stressing heart )and at rest to see they show any differences to detect blockages ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
With normal EKG, echo, stress test, blood work, nuclear stress test, what are my chances of something missed and heart atk? Chest pain/SOB/hot flashes
My ekg's are normal, loop monitor hr up to 180bpm, echo normal, breathing test normal, stress test normal. Any way it could be pulmonary hypertension?

Male 22. Get pvc's often. Had ecg, 24hecg, stress ecg, echo, cardiac mri/mra. Safe to ignore the pvc's? Its a quick skipped beat feeling.
Normal stress echo with no evidence of stress induced myocardial ischemia but abnormal exercise stress at 9.1 mets? Reached 94% of hr.

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
