A ten-year retrospective survey of Young Men's Christian Associations in the United States has revealed low rates of sudden deaths and cardiac arrests (approximately 1/3,000,000 and 1/2,000,000 person-hours, respectively). Reports in the literature also suggest that because of the uncertainties associated with positive or negative multistage exercise test (MSET) results in populations with a low prevalence of coronary heart disease, it is impractical to use MSETs to forestall significant cardiovascular complications in asymptomatic persons who exercise in sports facilities.
