Thank you for your question.


I am happy to help you today.


Great question!


The amount of concern would really depend on the degree of ST /T wave abnormalities.


Some doctors might just retest in a few months but some may want to do further testing.


I would like the doctor who did more testing.


The occasional PAC isn't a huge worry but of coarse if a person is symptomatic with them treatment is adviseable.


The fact the the NST was negative is great but since there was some changes I think it deserves to be looked at further.


The doctor might prescribe a cardiac event monitor that is worn to record cardiac rhythmn.


A angiogram ( cardiac cath ) might also be done.



Best Wishes,

It would be best to get an ok from a Cardiologist.


The patients doctor might want to orde more testing before giving complete exercise clearance.
