High Blood Pressure While Running On Treadmill Stress Test
hi im 50 yrs old and had to take a ecg stress test for my hgv licence.
my rest blood pressure was 140/85 after two mins on test blood pressure was taken while still walking and arm hanging down. test was stopped because pressure was 200/110. i have taken pressure on my own treadmill and heart rate 161 and showed 161/95 standing still but showed 230/110 while still walking.
i have tested my son 25 yrs old his was 222/140 while walking on mill but only 150/85 while standing still while pressure was taken. other friend the same very high while walking but low while standing still.
if while moving pressure reading is not correct how can i do a stress test and they stop it if pressure reaches 200+ i cant see how i can pass test.
as this is having a great reaction to my job need some help as no one will explain
can your blood pressure be taken and true reading while on stress test.
Here is a link to information on the exercise stress tests and blood pressure readings taken throughout the test.
