Unformatted text preview: An electrocardiography (ECG) machine was used, along with heart rate, blood pressure, and exertion rate, to monitor the electrical impulses of the heart of the patients. In one patient, the ECG revealed ST segment depressions in the first and third testing stages, but an absence in the second testing stage. In addition, there was a different patient who developed ventricular bigeminy during test one and three with ST segment depressions, while in test two the ST segment depression is smaller and the ventricular bigeminy is no longer present. The final results of this study were concluded by stating that the reduction of ST deviation, ventricular arrhythmias, and angina during the second stage of an exercise test can occur independently from any symptoms of myocardial ischemia in patients with coronary artery disease....
