In brief: Blocked Heart Artery
Provocable ischemia occurs when a heart artery is blocked and exercise creates a condition where the heart muscle needs more blood than the artery can deliver. It may create the classic clinical symptom of angina pectoris or chest pain.
Tests to diagnose provocable ischemia include the treadmill, nuclear stress/chemical testing, and stress echocardiography.
