BACKGROUND The appearance of a discrete upward deflection of the ST segment, termed the ST hump sign during exercise testing has been associated with resting hypertension and exaggerated blood pressure response to exercise. OBJECTIVE We investigated the correlation between the presence of hump sign during exercise testing with coexisting impaired… CONTINUE READING
