Positive GXT
I recently had a Q_Stress test and received the following report
1-Resting ECG Normal
2-Spirometry is in normal limits
3-Tested on a stationary bike for 10:06min with moderate resistance
4-Achieved 91% max predicted heart rate
5-Mets achieved 4.6
6-no reported sympmtoms
7-BP behavior was normal
8-BP normal at rest
CONCLUSION- POSITIVE GXT WITH ST DEPRESSION IN INFERIOR LEADS: NO CHEST PAINS
I am 59 5'10" 250LBS WM
My question is: i would like to have an explanation of GXT & ST Depression and the implications, I quite frankly am VERY concerned since I have never had any heakth problems. Should I be concerned??
HELP!

Well I am not a doctor, but it looks like you have some signs of myocardial ischemia with exercise.  That means that there could be some reduction in blood flow to the heart muscle.  I was wondering, though, about the METs achieved.  Are you sure you have the right number?  4.6 looks more like something I would do! :-)  If you reported no symptoms (which might cause them to terminate the test early) and achieved 91% of your target heart rate, the METs should be higher, I think.  They will probably send  you to a cardio for further evaluation.
