I had a persantine stress test done today. Not seeing my MD until Thursday. Question is, what is a norm for blood pressure elevation during the test? My resting BP was 130/90. BP at peaking was 140/90. I felt like it was 200/100. What are the normal expectations for the elevated BP and heart rate? Heart rate went to 112.
whats your age, weight, height ?
Im a male 52 yrs old I ran to 160 hr and my bp was 150/90 during the test, no big deal, i passed my with flying colors, i was on the tread mill 17 minutes
140/90 is notheing and 112 hr is low unless your VERY over weight or very old,lol
Thanks. 52years, 190#. I have a 95% abdominal aorta blockage and 50-70% blockage in the Right Carotid Artery. Expected BP to increase much more. Guess I am trying to prepare myself before I see the MD Thursday. I don't do well with surprises.
Drug was injected over a 4 minute period. Yes HR only reached 112. I am wondering if they may have stopped it for a reason. Not sure what to think at this point. BP did not significantly increase either. Do you know of any reasons why the HR and BP would not elevate?
