Does anyone routinely have patients sign a release before exercising patients

Good point.  We do not, but I think every vascular lab should ask the question,
"Do you have a history of heart disease?" before submitting a patient to
treadmill testing.  If there is ever any question, the referring physician
should be called prior to testing.
