Test positive: Stress testing is a functional cardiac test for coronary disease treadmill, dipyridamole, or other stressors are used to elevate heart rate and oxygen need. If ekg or echo or nuclear changes are identified that signifies stress ischemia and a positive test. That usually means a heart catheterization is coming. ...Read more

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

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 more

My treadmill test positive for provocable ischemia with rescued specificity....What does it means?What can I do now?

More info: Not sure exactly what type of test was done and why a young pt like you was stressed. If no imaging was used i suppose a stress test with ecocardiographic imaging would be helpful. How far did you walk and what are your risk factors would be helpful as well. ...Read more
