Increased exercise capacity reduces the risk of death in African-American and Caucasian men, researchers reported in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.
People with coronary heart disease and a type D personality -- a propensity to experience negative feelings - have a considerably increased risk of having a heart attack, needing heart surgery or dying from heart disease, according to Belgian and Dutch researchers.
NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Contrary to current guidelines, "aggressive" efforts to detect coronary artery disease are worthwhile in asymptomatic patients with type 2 diabetes, even those with only one or no cardiovascular risk factors, a study conducted in Italy suggests.
New research from Saint Louis University School of Medicine may give doctors a way to predict life-threatening heart problems in women.
Exercise capacity, as measured in terms of VO2max, is a powerful predictor of death in patients with coronary artery disease, not just patients with heart failure. That is the finding of Mayo Clinic research presented today at the American Heart Association's Scientific Sessions 2005 in Dallas.
Performing cardiac stress tests that measure exercise capacity and heart rate recovery can improve dramatically on existing techniques that predict who is most likely to suffer a heart attack or die from coronary heart disease (CHD), the leading cause of death in the United States, a team of cardiologists at Johns Hopkins reports.
While apparently healthy men don't routinely undergo exercise stress testing, it may be useful for raising a red flag about impending health problems, Norwegian investigators report based on a study of middle-age men.
A new, more precise test is available to improve the accuracy of detecting coronary artery disease and risk of heart attack, and can be done right at the bedside.
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...
