Presentation

I study fitness tests and exercise electrocardiography (ECG) in firefighters.

In Sweden, firefighters by regulation perform repeated treadmill tests for evaluation of the physical capacity, and exercise ECG tests for assessment of the cardiovascular health. 

We analyse the predictive ability of different variables from the exercise ECG in this low-risk group, as well as the effect of changing from cycle ergometer to treadmill- based fitness tests.

The research area connects to sports cardiology and risk assessment in asymptomatic, low-risk subjects.
