Help Your ECG tread mill test may be lying about your heart

New Delhi, Mar 13 : The ECG Tread Mill Test commonly used to identify people who are prone to heart attacks is not a fool-proof procedure to know the condition of heart especially among high-risk professionals like pilots, according to a latest study.

The study is an eye opener and probably the established criteria for positive Tread Mill Test (TMT) needs revision in order to avoid treating healthy persons as heart patients, its author Colonel M J Jacob, head of the department of Nuclear Medicine, Army Hospital Research and Refferal said.

The study has been published in the Journal of Associations of Physicians in India.

With increased prevalence of coronary artery disease, people especiall the young are anxious to find out about their risk of suffering from a heart attack in near future and hence, undergo TMT to clear the doubt.
