Sample Type / Medical Specialty: Cardiovascular / Pulmonary
Sample Name: Stress Test Graded Exercise Treadmill

Description: Chest pain, Chest wall tenderness occurred with exercise.
(Medical Transcription Sample Report)


INDICATIONS: Chest pain.

PROCEDURE DONE: Graded exercise treadmill stress test.

STRESS ECG RESULTS: The patient was stressed by continuous graded treadmill testing for nine minutes of the standard Bruce protocol. The heart rate increased from 68 beats per minute to 178 beats per minute, which is 100% of the maximum predicted target heart rate. The blood pressure increased from 120/70 to 130/80. The baseline resting electrocardiogram reveals a regular sinus rhythm. The tracing is within normal limits. Symptoms of chest pain occurred with exercise. The pain persisted during the recovery process and was aggravated by deep inspiration. Marked chest wall tenderness noted. There were no ischemic ST segment changes seen during exercise or during the recovery process.

CONCLUSIONS:
1. Stress test is negative for ischemia.
2. Chest wall tenderness occurred with exercise.
3. Blood pressure response to exercise is normal.
