abstract

  • A target HR of 115 beats/min was highly sensitive and specific for determination of exercise-induced TWA as an index of risk of malignant ventricular tachyarrhythmias. However, a significant number of patients may not be able to achieve this target HR, resulting in an indeterminate test. The value of pharmacologic testing in this group should be assessed.
