What Does It Mean If My Stress Test Is Negative For Ischemia
My stress test results were read to me over the phone by a nurse. What does large anterior reversible midlateral ischemia mean.
Heart of the matter: Please speak with your doctor himself or herself, so you can get individualized answers. The nurse's report sounds like you have signs of reversible damage to the front part of your heart muscle, from not enough oxygenated blood nourishing it. Your doctor can share his/her interpretations of these results, & make suggestions based on your whole evaluation. ...Read more
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
I had a nuc stress test and dr. Told me it was negative, but i was recently declined for insurance due to mild ischemia. Is test neg? What should I do
So i had stress test done it ame back ok but they said i had reversible ischemia what's that mean am i gonna die? And had 10% positives in the test
Coronary angiogram: Reversible ischemia means that when you exercise part of heart muscle is deprived of blood supply. You are not going to die, but should consult with a cardiologist to see if you need coronary angiogram. Your heart should be at resting stage. Avoid any exercise until you have the work up done. Stress test can be sometime wrong. At age 31 i dont expect you to have coronary artery disease. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Recent stress test shows mild ischemia anterobasally and distal apical laterally. What does it mean exactly?
Arterial blockage.: Ischemia in areas of the heart, as you have related, infers that the arteries that feed these parts of the heart are narrowed such that blood flow through them reduces with exertion. It means these areas of the heart are vulnerable and further testing is needed and intervention may be necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Very mild reversible ischemia my stress test shows there is very mild ischemia in the anterior wall in the LAD territory.What is that mean?
Does " no significant ischemia" mean their is no ischemia? This showed during stress test and found previous mi?
Very mild reversible ischemia my stress test shows there is very mild ischemia in the anterior wall in the LAD territory.What does that mean?
Blood flow: Reversible ischemia means that an area of your heart muscle is not getting adequate blood flow (at times) but then the blood flow "catches up" (i.e. Reversible). The lad is the left anterior descending coronary artery - it's an important blood vessel. The lad may have a blockage - would recommend seeing your cardiologist. ...Read more
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
Cardiologist told me yesterday i had a normal nuc stress test. Asked if that meant no ischemia or no detectable, he responded "no ischemia". True?
Presumably.: A negative nuclear or chemical stress test should rule out ischemia with 95% confidence. Not 100% confidence, 95%. There's always the possibility for false negative results - if clinical suspicion is really high and the test is negative, more testing may still be in order to really be sure. Echo not reliable enough unless damage to the heart has already occurred. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
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
Ischemia is a symptom in which a person does not have enough blood supply to a part of the body, making that part of the body "ischemic". For example, in a heart attack, a coronary artery is blocked so blood cannot get to the heart muscle beyond the blockage point. The heart muscle lacking ...Read more
