Exercise Testing Special Protocols
In the United States, exercise treadmill testing remains the most commonly performed test to identify or confirm the presence of latent coronary artery disease. In contrast, most Europeans are more familiar with cycling and this testing device is more common there. However, standard protocols with specific speed and grade intervals are available for each type of testing.
