An Exercise Test for Coronary Insufficiency
Any exercise tolerance test is intended to record the objective accompaniments of coronary insufficiency. The test must therefore be stressful to effect such insufficiency. Described in this report is an exercise test which is considered specific in demonstrating coronary inadequacy when present, and reliable in ruling it out, provided that the effects of tachycardia on the electrocardiogram are recognized.
