Risk stratification in patients with chest pain.
This article reviews the role of exercise testing in the assessment of patients with suspected coronary disease. To accomplish this, four major topics are considered: the general concept of risk stratification; the estimation of outcomes using data from the initial evaluation of the patient; diagnostic assessment with the exercise test; and prognostic assessment with the exercise test. This review focuses on the standard treadmill exercise test.
