to measure physical fitness.
The exercise treadmill test
(ETT) assesses for exercise induced myocardial ischemia and is commonly the first-line investigation in troponin-negative chest pain suspected of having coronary artery disease2.
For the first time we can quantify the impact of your performance level on a treadmill test
in adding or subtracting years from your actual age." According to the CDC, heart disease is the leading cause of death among women and men in the United States.
Plenty of past studies have linked high aerobic fitness with a reduced risk for later heart disease and vice versa.The researchers thought that they might be able to quantify how well the treadmill test
predicted future heart problems by using the database of firefighters' health information.
After administering a treadmill test
to 122,007 people and later recording their mortality rates over a 23-year period, Cleveland Clinic researchers have determined that the more you exercise, the higher your chances of achieving a long, healthy life.
