    New treadmill test to predict heart disease in women

    A special type of exercise on treadmill can accurately predict heart disease in women over the age of 65.

    University of California - Davis researchers also found that two specific electrocardiogram (EKG) indicators of heart stress during an exercise treadmill test (ETT) further enhanced its predictive power.

    The study can help guide cardiologists in making the treadmill test more useful in clinical practice.

    "Our study found that the test is a very valuable tool for identifying coronary artery disease in women older than 65, and that it can be used to help select those who may require higher-tech diagnostics," said Ezra Amsterdam, senior author of the study.

    During ETT, a patient exercises on a treadmill at gradually increasing speed and elevation while undergoing blood pressure monitoring and an EKG to gauge exercise-induced changes in the heart's electrical activity.
