Stress Test Blood Pressure
Hi. My mother is to undergo a stress test. Blood pressure: systolic 110-180; diastolic 60-110. She feels and moves weak. Is it ok to do the test?
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.

This congenital heart vessel defect encroaches (narrows) the aorta before the take off of the Left subclavian artery so that the BP is low in the Left arm.
