Blood pressure ranges

I am a Respiratory Therapist who does MVO2/Cardiac Stress tests.  My department is stand alone, we don't belong to another department.  I am new to this hospital.  Where I came from the cardiologist was present for the tests.  Here we do it alone.  The physician is only required to be in the hospital.  So, I was selected to write up our policy.  The questions they gave ME to answer are about what the blood pressure does during exercise.  I cannot get in touch with any of the cardiologists from where I came from (always busy).  I don't blame them, so I am asking for help from you.  The first question is what is a normal range blood pressure during exercise for a person who has a normal at rest BP?  We know the the BP rises (systolic higher and diastolic about normal) but what would be the normal high that we should not panic about?  Also, if the pt is on vasopressors what will the BP likely to do while exercising?  Will it increase too?  If so, what will be the "okay, their still in the clear" range?  Hope you can help.  I've been having a hard time finding anything on the internet, except for your website.  Thanks!
