The usefulness of low-level exercise test results for determining prognosis of 207 patients taking beta-blocking agents early after acute myocardial infarction was studied. Good performance on the nine-minute test combined with clinical absence of pulmonary congestion can identify those patients at very low risk for death from cardiac causes, even if they are taking beta-blocking drugs at the time of the test.
