  • Weaknesses include that the study was retrospective, and the population and proportion of pharmacological versus exercise stress tests likely differed among contributing centers. (onlinejacc.org)
  • Median (interquartile range) test-related charges were lower with stress echocardiography: $2,424 ($2400-$2508) versus $3619 ($3584-$3728), P (bioportfolio.com)
  • test
  • Your doctor may order a stress echocardiography test if you have chest pain that they think is due to coronary artery disease or a myocardial infarction, which is a heart attack . (aarpmedicareplans.com)
  • Analysis of the wall motion was performed separately on the day after each dobutamine stress test (analysis A), and all images from the serial studies in the same patient were simultaneously retrieved and compared side-by-side in the same view (analysis B). The mean values of heart rate and blood pressure were comparable for each in the two studies except for the heart rate at rest. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Exercise stress echocardiography is a test used to see how your heart responds to stress (exercise). (drugs.com)
  • Before the test is started, the patient should be interviewed and examined for any signs of acute or chronic illnesses, which may preclude stress testing. (neurologyadvisor.com)
  • Stress test interpretation should be performed by an experienced echocardiographer. (neurologyadvisor.com)
  • It also causes unnecessary stress for the person receiving the test, and it brings unnecessary financial costs which someone pays. (wikipedia.org)
