Description: Stress test with Bruce protocol due to chest pain.
(Medical Transcription Sample Report)


PROTOCOL: Bruce.

PERTINENT MEDICATION: None.

REASON FOR TEST: Chest pain.

PROCEDURE AND INTERPRETATION:
1. Baseline heart rate: 67.
2. Baseline blood pressure: 150/86.
3. Total time: 6 minute 51 seconds.
4. METs: 10.1.
5. Peak heart rate: 140.
6. Percent of maximum-predicted heart rate: 90.
7. Peak blood pressure: 200/92.
8. Reason test terminated: Shortness of breath and fatigue.
9. Estimated aerobic capacity: Average.
10. Heart rate response: Normal.
11. Blood pressure response: Hypertensive.
12. ST segment response: Normal.
13. Chest pain: None.
14. Symptoms: None.
15. Arrhythmia: None.

CONCLUSION:
1. Average aerobic capacity.
2. Normal heart rate and blood pressure response to exercise.
3. No symptomatic electrocardiographic evidence of ischemia.
