Abnormalities on an exercise stress test can predict both cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular deaths, according to a study published in Mayo Clinic Proceedings.

Dr Nóra Sydó, from Semmelweis University in Budapest, Hungary, and colleagues sought to identify specific causes of death and determine the prevalence of non-cardiovascular deaths in an exercise test referral population and to assess whether exercise test parameters predict non-cardiovascular as well as cardiovascular deaths.
