Exercise treadmill testing is recommended for assessing prognosis in patients with symptoms suggestive of coronary artery disease and at least an intermediate probability for disease, as assessed by age, sex, and symptoms (1). Current guidelines focus on the Duke treadmill score, which incorporates functional capacity, electrocardiographic evidence of ischemia, and test-induced angina pectoris (2–4). However, this scheme of risk stratification based primarily on age, sex, symptom status, and the Duke treadmill score does not take into account other simple historical measures that have known diagnostic and prognostic value (5, 6), as well as more recently discovered exercise test predictors of risk (7), such as heart rate recovery (8–11) and stress-related ventricular ectopy (12).
