What is a Persantine Myoview? and Why would a doctor run this type of test?
Asked by Lizzie Piatz 2 years ago.
It is a nuclear medicine test using a "dye" that is given in an IV. It helps show if you have any blockage in your coronary arteries of your heart. These are the arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle itself. If blockage is suspected then they may decide to do a heart catherization to get a better look at the arteries. When they do this they can put stents in the arteries to reopen them. Good luck and don't count your chickens until they are hatched!! Answered by Cleta Yutzy 2 years ago.
First of all information between a doctor and a patient is confidential so the results should come to you. Secondly it depends what the test is for. Normally labs only make specific tests based on the doctor's instructions. If he hasn't asked for an AIDS test they won't do one. If. however, you think you are infected seek professional help immediately. Talk to your doctor about your concerns. If you do have it, and God forbid you do, then what your Mom knows doesn't matter, but the treatment does. If she's loving and caring she will understand and support you. Good luck and best wishes. If you turn out to be tested negative, and i hope you do, make sure you keep away from the previous bad influences and things that can cause AIDS. Answered by Huong Roesslein 2 years ago.

Dipyridamole is used with other drugs to reduce the risk of blood clots after heart valve replacement. It works by preventing excessive blood clotting. Consult your doctor or pharmacist.

Has anyone had a Nuclear Medicine Test of their heart, their puting mibi through IV tommorow to check for any?
heart problems, since i've been having weird palpatations, im just wondering has anyone had this done before, does it hurt, we're there any side effects?
Asked by Brittney Mcarthur 2 years ago.
There are no side effects from the mibi.......(or sestamibi). It leaves your body through the urine in approximately 24 hours and is less radioactive than a chest xray. Are you going to walk on the treadmill or are they going to use medication to stress your heart? Some of the medications they use have side effects, one of them (adenosine) lasts 6 minutes and can cause breathing problems if you have have lung issues but goes away competely when stopped, the other (persantine or dipyridamole) can cause nausea or a severe headache that can last up to 2 days, but is less likely to happen. Answered by Theodora Elsbury 2 years ago.
The Sestamibi (or Cardiolite) that they will administer to you (IV) will have absolutely no affect on you at all. They will give you the tracer after you have reached about 85% of the maximum predicted heart rate for you age. I have done a LOT of these and, although you can be a bit tired at the end of the test (the treadmill always wins ;-)) that will be the only affect you will have. The above is the most common form of the test. They also can perform the same test, but give you one of a few drugs to simulate he effect of exercise. Don't worry if you get a little flushed or a headache...these sensations are either short lasting or can be reversed by counter-drugs they keep on hand. Good luck, you will do great! Answered by Bobby Dueitt 2 years ago.
No one yet has mentioned HOW the nuclear med actually get IN your body. They DO put in an I.V. to administer other medications throughout the test. That part is the only part that HURTS , BUT......... If there is a BIG heart problem there """""MAY"""" be chest pain during the test. (that would indicate a POSITIVE STRESS TEST). Other than that, you may be winded from the treadmill part, or if you have the chemical stress test (pesantine or dobutamine) you may experience headache or rapid heart beat (which they will give you another medication to reverse the effects) Hope this helps....

If you are talking about having the new three dimensional scan of your heart and lungs with dye then I have had it done to me. There is no pain. Only thing I had problem with was the medication that they give me to lower my heart rate for the scan. Don't remember how long before the scan I had to take the medication, but they give me the medication to take while I was on the way to have the screen. I just made it to the center just in time, because I did not have no one with me on the trip. They had to give me another medication to get my heart rate down. Overall, this is the best way to have your heart and lungs checked out. Nothing else will give your doctor the information that this scan will. Your other choice will be painful and will not give your doctor the feedback of this scan. There was no side effects. Answered by Eliana Demarest 2 years ago.
I have had this done before. No pain, )except for the IV), no side effects. I did go to the Cleveland Heart Clinic site the other nite though and they said there was another test better than this one. Before I have another one I am going to check this out. Good luck and hope everything turns out well for you. Answered by Lyle Hettenhausen 2 years ago.
I do, and if i don't be attentive to the guy very properly, I each and every so often help myself to a lipstick or those beautiful little pattern-sized shampoo bottles that they themselves stole out of the hotel. Or a Percodan or a pair valium. even though. To h*** with 'em. I draw the line at rings, although. No rings. i wouldn't in any respect take somebody's rings! which would be incorrect. Meh-heh-heh.

I have had about 16 of these things its a good money maker for my Cardiologist.....But i've never had no ill affects from it and i have ran on a tread mill each time.....and i have weird palpatations as well......and i'll tell you this Stress / caffiene / and other things can contribute to this problem......i have them at times at rest just as much as i do with exertion...so tell your doctor how and when they affect you most so they can narrow down there diagnosis...........and dont presume they will get it right everytime.......cause no matter who they are and thier prestige they wont............so you pay attention to what and how you do things to make them come about or when they go away..........this will help you even more........and dont be afraid.....that to can make them worse !!!

What's the name of this cardiac stress test drug?
If a patient can't use a treadmill for a stress test, there is a certain IV drug given that stimulates their heart as though it were exercising. It's not the isotope (rubidium, etc), it's something like CardioScan, or something like that, I think. What is it?
Asked by Shantell Mcwilliams 2 years ago.
Dobutamine is only one of the agents used. Persantine is an older agent. When I did them, I preferred Adenosine. Any problems from the agent disappeared in < 30 seconds. You may also be talking about Cardiolite, a trade name for the isotope, if I remember correctly. Answered by Georgeann Labatt 2 years ago.
Can a medical stress test???
i didn't do anything but sit in a chair with the iv & whatever they injected into it.
Asked by Elizebeth Matlack 2 years ago.
Can a medical stress test cause side effects? I had one the last week in August and I have been coughing really hard ever since. I talked with my doc about it and he gave me stuff for sinus. It is NOT sinus. It is like something is caught in my throat. Any one have any isdea-my throat is very sore & my ribs are killing me from all of the coughing. Answered by Janis Skeen 2 years ago.
Did you have a dobumatine or persantine stress test? sometimes they just hook up to ekg and have you run like crazy on the treadmill. i doubt something from the test caused it, however, you should have a chest x-ray to see if your lungs are clear. meds often times aggervate other organs. all the huffin and puffin on the machines isn't helpful either. your lungs expand and are gasping while your body continues to try to perform. Answered by Keisha Bregon 2 years ago.
I don't think the stress test could cause coughing. It is probably just a coincidence. If anything, it could be the weather. (If you smoke, that is also something to consider) Why did you have the test done? They wanted to give one to my son to determine his asthma. Answered by Colette Presler 2 years ago.
maybe you're out of shape. and it could be sinuses or you're just getting sick. Answered by Shelby Rustin 2 years ago.
Stress test question?
what, exactly, is involved? how long does it take? my doc is referring me to a cardiologist...i had a recent episode with chest pains, and my ekg was inconclusive. what other tests can i expect to have to 'take?' i'm virtually a living example of 'risk factors', but haven't had any...

Answered by Felicita Greber 2 years ago.
A nuclear stress test can be perfomed 2 different ways. On a treadmill or with medication to chemically induce stress. A radioisotope is used for the images. A treadmill nuclear test, you have an IV started, get the isotope injected and have pictures made for your rest images. Then you walk on a treadmill until you reach your target heart rate, the isotope is then injected again, you walk (or run) another minute and then they take another set of pictures. The cardiologist I work for prefers this type of test to the chemical test because he feels it is a more accurate test. In a chemical test, an IV is started, you are injected with the isotope, have your rest pictures taken just like in the other test. The difference is, instead of walking on the treadmill you are given a medication to chemically stress your heart. Our office usually uses adenosine, dobutamine, or persantine. These medications open the vessels in your body so that your heart has to work a little harder. The medicine can make you feel funny. Some people complain of chest pain, nausea, headache, odd sensation in their throat. Some people's blood pressure drops very low and the feel as if they are going to pass out. It's not a pleasant sensation. These symptoms only happen while the medicine is infusing, and when it's over you feel much better. Then you again, have the isotope injected and have your stress pictures taken. There are stress tests done that do not require injecting any medicines. One is a stess echocardiogram, where they take ultrasound pictures before and after you walk on a treadmill. And then there is just a plain treadmill, where your ECG only is monitored. Ask your doctor which is best for you, and good luck!! Hipe this helps! Answered by Annemarie Rodrigeuz 2 years ago.
You'll have about 15 minutes on a special treadmill that can go VERY steep. They start easy and low, and go up every 2 or 3 minutes in both speed and slope, about .5 mph and 2% slope. Tough to go much over 12 minutes. They stop when you start breathing hard, or reach an expected max heart rate for your age. If you have a lot of risk factors, you need to start changing soon. I had none except heredity, and it was all I needed. I passed a stress test twice, though I had a swollen mitral valve with one, and a strained mitral valve the next time. Less than a year later, I finally got some angina. It was massive, a near heart attack, about 4 times. I was on vacation, and had to return home to get more tests. After an angiogram, I was asked if I had been on oxygen and bedridden, since my two main cardiac arteries were 99% blocked. They scheduled me for a triple bypass the next morning. 50% of all first heart attacks are fatal, and the also first indication anything is wrong. Change diet, lose weight, start a progressive exercise program, reduce stress, cut down on alcohol, and stop smoking. Ask your doctor if he will prescribe nitro tabs for you for the chest pain, before you actually need them for a heart attack. They may save your life. Answered by Annelle Strauf 2 years ago.
You go in and change into a gown, they hook a bunch of wires up to you. You fill out a questionnaire, and sign a release stating that a certain number of patients, die during the test and they are not responsible. They start the test and you can hear your heart rate on the monitor. The tread mill starts to incline, like your walking up hill. At some point they stop the test, and you get to get dressed and leave. They send the results to your primary care physician. Well they did in my case. He told me I did 85 pct of the test with no sign of heart trouble. I had not had a heart attack, and he didn't think I was in eminent danger. But, that didn't mean I wouldn't go face down in the parking lot. Guess that part was CYA for him. Good luck! Answered by Jacquelyne Degross 2 years ago.
