Exercise stress testing is a valuable diagnostic tool in the detection of cardiac disease and related problems. This pocket guide provides an overview of exercise stress testing, indications for testing, and patient preparation, and then discusses each possible finding and what to do to complete/terminate a test or handle complications, etc. While there are enormously large volumes on the subject, it is not easy to find a small but thorough guide such as this.
