The patient underwent a lexiscan cardiolote stress test using an injection of 0.4 mg oh lexiscan. The patient was then injected with cardiolite and taken for nuclear imagine. There was -- after the injection of lexiscan.
baseline BP was 98/58 and changed to -/- mmhg after the lexiscan which is a --.
After the injection ekg showed --rhythym. There was -- that could suggest ischemia.

impression:

lexiscan stress test for inducrd myocardial ischemia by ekg or symptom criteria

Can anyone explain what this means? I am so confused

this is for a cardiologist I reckon. best you seek an apt with your gp or cardiologist. sorry, others may know more, but I feel that this is for the medicos. people have different outcomes and responses, esp with testing. one persons results may be similar, but have different interpretation and meaning. take care.

I agree, this is for your cardiologist to explain.

I agree with the others a follow up with your cardiologists or primary doctor.
wish I could've helped better.
Try not to worry until you've seen your doctor, many well wishes.
Post what your doctor says...
