ABSTRACT
This article presents a study, which states that exercise-test variables related to ischemia, fitness, and autonomic function predict risk for cardiovascular and all-cause mortality in asymptomatic women. 2994 asymptomatic women who were 30 to 80 years of age, had no known cardiovascular disease, and were eligible for exercise testing, were taken for the study. Clinical variables included hypertension, diabetes, obesity, elevated total cholesterol, smoking status, family history of premature coronary heart disease, postmenopausal status, medication use, and physical activity level. Of 427 women, who died during the study period, 147 died from cardiovascular causes.
