I'd like to speak with you today about Treadmill Testing and what we do without drugs in leading up to a treadmill test. There are two reasons for doing a treadmill test: One, is to try diagnose if someone's symptoms is related to the heart. In that situation, we want to push the heart as hard as possible, so we don't want you on any medications that will slow the heartbeat down. In the other situation, we try to find out how well does someone perform in the real world on the medications we've got them on, knowing we already have a diagnosis made, so we want you on your medication so we can assist a real world scenario.
