Value of exercise testing for screening asymptomatic men for latent coronary artery disease

Progress in Cardiovascular Diseases
V F FroelicherM C Lancaster

Abstract

Treadmill exercise testing identifies a group of men at high risk for coronary atherosclerotic heart disease. However, the predictive value and sensitivity limitations are obvious. An abnormal electrocardiographic response does not absolutely predict the presence of coronary atherosclerotic heart disease, and a normal response does not rule out this possibility. Thus in appropriate instances when the minimal risk of coronary angiography is justified this procedure can be used to determine the anatomic correlation of exercise-induced functional ST-segment changes.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.

Arrhythmia

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.
