Clinical exercise testing still plays a major role in diagnosing, managing, and monitoring coronary artery disease (CAD) and other cardiovascular diseases. The main advantage of exercise testing is its availability across specialized and primary health care. The main weakness of exercise testing is its limited diagnostic accuracy regarding CAD. In diagnosing CAD, exercise testing must be confined to patients having an ability to exercise, an intermediate or high pre-test probability of CAD, and an interpretable electrocardiogram (ECG). Hemodynamic exercise responses and exercise capacity provide prognostic information. Interpretation of exercise testing calls for expertise in both exercise ECG and the basics of exercise physiology.
