  30. 30. Major symptoms or signs suggestive of cardiopulmonary or metabolic disease.* ___________________________________________________ 1. Pain, discomfort (or other anginal equivalent) in the chest, neck, jaw, arms, or other areas that may be ischemic in nature 2. Shortness of breath at rest or with mild exertion 3. Dizziness or syncope (fainting) 4. Orthopnea/paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea (labored breathing; discomfort in breathing in any but erect position) 5. Ankle edema 6. Palpitations or tachycardia 7. Intermittent claudication 8. Known heart murmur 9. Unusual fatigue or shortness of breath with usual activities ___________________________________________________ *These symptoms must be interpreted in the clinical context in which they appear, since they are not all specific for cardiopulmonary or metabolic disease.

HR for exercise prescription  To measure or estimate VO2 max.  To determine baseline aerobic fitness level  To help plan a safe and effective exercise program  To aid in the diagnosis of CVD in the mod. risk or in those who are symptomatic (*with ECG*)  To follow the progress of known disease (*with ECG)
