Comparative effectiveness of exercise testing and continuous monitoring for detecting arrhythmias in patients with previous myocardial infarction.

Abstract

To detect unsuspected arrhythmias, 60 patients with previous myocardial infarction were studied by both submaximal treadmill exercise testing and 10 hours of continuous ECG monitoring (Holter technique) during normal activity. Significant arrhythmias were detected in 28 of 60 patients (47%). Eight patients (13%) had one or more premature ventricular… (More)
