Modified Bruce Protocol Stress Test
 
Does anyone know the difference between the regular Bruce Protocol Treadmill Stress Test, and the Modified Bruce version?

I understand there is a modified version that can be used in post-MI patients, or people with low exercise tolerance, back or leg injury, etc., in that the modified test does not demand as much in way of speed and grade, but relys on duration instead.

Does the modified version give as accurate results as the regular protocol? Does anyone have any knowledge on this? Thanks-Jerry
