Faster heart rates from mild mental stress before exercise doubles the risk of sudden cardiac death in later life, researchers in France warn. The study, published in the European Heart Journal, found that men whose heart rate increased the most during mild mental stress just before an exercise test had twice the risk of dying of a sudden heart attack in later life than men whose heart rate did not increase as much. Study leader Xavier Jouven of the Hopital Europeen Georges Pompidou in...

South Korean scientists say a new scanning technology -- optical coherence tomography -- might be the best way to detect coronary artery vulnerable plaque. Vulnerable plaque, or VP, has been identified as a possible cause of sudden cardiac death, most of which occurs in patients with no history of heart disease. The researchers said VP is different from fibrotic, calcified plaque that grows gradually until a lesion occludes an artery. VP is susceptible to sudden rupture, swiftly forming a...

Cardiac Stress Test
2012-11-18 19:30:13

The cardiac stress test is a diagnostic test used in Cardiac pathology for the purpose of patient diagnosis. It measures the heart’s function while placing a heavier workload on the heart. The cardiologist cannot be at the patient’s side while at work, under stress, during a workout or pushed to the limit so this test mimics those activities in a controlled setting. How it is Performed The stress is created by increasing the workload on the cardiac system. This can be accomplished by...
