Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic
The treadmill assesses the response of the heart to increased activity. Normally there would an increase in heart rate
in response to exercise , in addition to an increase in the output of the heart.
The increase in heart rate results in increased stress
or workload of the heart.
If there is any areas of the heart that are affected by a reduced blood supply (ischemia
) then they would not be able to tolerated the increased workload.
This would show up as changes on the heart rhythm strip of the treadmill test.
The fact that the results state ' suggestive positive' indicates that there is some evidence of reduced supply in some aspect of the heart which requires further investigation.
If ischemia is confirmed then treatment involves minimising any risk factors such as controlling blood pressure, blood sugar, cholesterol
, discontinuing smoking
(if this is an issue).
I hope this helps
