Exercise (stress) testing is one of the most popular and essential diagnostic tools in the field of cardiovascular medicine. Pocket Guide to Stress Testing uses a practical approach in describing the clinically pertinent aspects of this subject, incorporating tables and ECG tracings whenever applicable. The authors address the most important uses of exercise ECG testing, including chest pain evaluation, determining functional capacity of cardiac patients as well as seemingly healthy people, and low–level postmyocardial infarction testing. This pocket guide simply and concisely covers the standard treadmill test and various pharmacologic stress tests for those patients unable to perform the treadmill test.
