We previously observed an attenuation of exercise-induced myocardial ischemia on the ergocycle during a ramp protocol compared to the standard Bruce protocol treadmill test in patients with coronary heart disease. However, it was uncertain whether decreased ischemia on the ergocycle resulted from the warm-up effect of the more gradual ramp protocol or from the mode of exercise itself (cycling vs running). Sixteen stable patients, aged 64 +/- 5 years, with documented coronary heart disease (> or… CONTINUE READING
