Although blood pressure (BP) is measured routinely during exercise testing, its clinical significance is not fully understood or appreciated. As the number of studies has increased, conflicting data have emerged, partly due to differences in methodologies, populations studied, testing procedures, and definitions used for an abnormal BP response. This article attempts to review the literature studying the physiology and pathophysiology of the BP response to exercise testing and summarize the… CONTINUE READING
