• tier 1 capital rat
  • Of the 90 banks tested, 7 failed the 6% tier 1 capital ratio threshold: five in Spain (Unnim, Diada, Espiga, Banca Cívica, and Cajasur), one in Germany (Hypo Real Estate), and one in Greece (ATEBank). (wikipedia.org)
  • On July 2010 Banca March came on top of the European Union banking stress test exercise in terms of Tier 1 capital ratio. (wikipedia.org)

  • This is a prospective, single-center study that aims to evaluate the acute and delayed effect of exercise stress testing on the peripheral gene expression (PGE) levels using a predefined gene set established in the Corus CAD (Age/Sex/Gene Expression score - ASGES) test in subject with known obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) and in control subjects (without known CAD).

  • echocardiography
  • Play media In terms of the diagnosis of aortic regurgitation a common test for the evaluation of the severity is transthoracic echocardiography, which can provide two-dimensional views of the regurgitant jet, allow measurement of velocity, and estimate jet volume. (wikipedia.org)
  • diabetes
  • If you have current health issues such as diabetes, hypothyroidism, sleep apnea, obesity, fatigue, or shortness of breath then speak with your primary care provider about having a screening test performed. (kentuckianahealthwellness.com)
  • If you take medication for the heart, diabetes or other diseases may be required to take less or none of their medication before the test. (truestressmanagement.com)
  • ratio
  • According to the Financial Times: While most scrutiny on Friday focused on the seven banks, of the 91 tested, that fell short of the 6 per cent tier one capital ratio pass mark, the exercise also shines the spotlight on the banks with the strongest capital positions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Banca March, with a stressed tier one capital ratio of 19 per cent, is an anomaly in the Spanish financial system. (wikipedia.org)
  • heart rate
  • The test will still increase your heart rate and your blood pressure will be monitored. (truestressmanagement.com)
  • The test continues until you reach a target heart rate, unless complications such as chest pain or an exaggerated rise in blood pressure develop. (dheerajbojwani.com)
  • Baseline measurements of heart rate and blood pressure will be taken before exercise starts. (dheerajbojwani.com)
  • The equations produced, incorporating arm exercise capacity, 1 min heart rate recovery and ST segment depression ≥1 mm, perform well in predicting future cardiovascular events, cardiovascular mortality and total mortality, especially once adjusted to account for common adverse clinical characteristics. (bmj.com)
  • This type of exercise also increases both heart rate and stroke volume of the heart. (wikipedia.org)
  • anaerobic
  • Static exercise consists of weight lifting and is mostly anaerobic, meaning the body does not rely on oxygen for performance. (wikipedia.org)
  • detect
  • This test is painless and it helps detect insufficient blood flow to the heart. (wikipedia.org)
  • This test can also detect any thickening in the walls of the left ventricles as well as any defects in the electrical impulses of the heart. (wikipedia.org)
  • segment
  • At rest and stress, each segment was scored on a 0 (normal) to 4 (absent contrast/radiotracer uptake) scale by each of the 3 blinded readers according to the amount of contrast or radiotracer the myocardium in the segment absorbed. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Another study even showed that HFQRS analysis performs equally well in women, a population in which standard, ST segment based stress ECG analysis, is notoriously inaccurate. (wikipedia.org)
  • procedure
  • The test is not a recommended screening procedure to be given to all individuals to determine one's overall health. (zocdoc.com)
  • Banks
  • Eight out of 90 banks failed the test-five in Spain, two in Greece and one in Austria. (wikipedia.org)
  • The 2010 test was the second of its kind, which assesses the financial strength of European banks under different adverse scenarios. (wikipedia.org)

  • serum
  • The aim of the study was the assessment of changes in concentrations of serum nitric oxide (NO), plasma von Willebrand factor (vWf) and selected parameters of electrocardiographic exercise tests after 4-week nebivolol treatment. (viamedica.pl)
  • blood pressure
  • This is necessary because nitroglycerin, which is sometimes given during a stress test to relieve chest pain, should not be given to a person who has recently taken Viagra, since the combination can cause a serious drop in blood pressure. (dheerajbojwani.com)
