Abstract

Exercise electrocardiography is a noninvasive means of obtaining objective evidence of myocardial ischemia by characteristic alteration in the ST segment. In symptomatic patients it is highly specific for coronary disease and has fair sensitivity. However, sensitivity rises with increasing extent of coronary disease. Positive ST response has important implications for prognosis although, in the asymptomatic population, a high proportion of false positive results mandates caution in interpreting the test. When appropriately conducted, the test involves minimal risk.
