Murray, Paul M.; Cantwell, John D.
Physician and Sportsmedicine, v16 n1 p75-76,79 Jan 1988
The results of exercise testing in 192 apparently healthy women were examined to assess the false-positive rate in cardiovascular response. Findings are presented. It is suggested that varying methods of testing and interpretation may account for the high rate of false positivity in some testing centers. (Author/MT)
