Answer

It is very important to consider exercise capacity when interpreting an exercise test result. This may be achieved with one of several markers of exercise capacity, including maximal exercise duration, maximal metabolic equivalent of task (MET) level achieved, maximum workload achieved, or maximum heart rate and heart rate–blood pressure product.
