Legal and Scientific Considerations of the Exercise Stress Test - Source: Journal of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, vol. 14, #2

By Margaret Ciccolella, et al. • www.ProHealth.com • February 23, 2008


[Note: This article examines the legal and scientific bases on which exercise stress test-retest protocol can provide medically acceptable evidence of disability for the ME/CFS patient. It follows a study by this team at the University of the Pacific Fatigue Lab - "Diminished Cardiopulmonary Capacity During Post-Exercise Malaise" - which found extreme post exertion abnormalities in ME/CFS patients vs. normal controls not immediately but later.]

To qualify for disability benefits, a claimant must establish the existence of a serious medically determinable impairment (MDI) that causes the inability to work. The single stress test has been used to objectively establish whether a claimant can engage in "substantial gainful employment" and is an important determinant of the award or denial of benefits.

A review of case law indicates problems associated with a single test protocol that may be remedied by a "test-retest" protocol. The results of a preliminary study employing this approach indicate that the test-retest protocol addresses problems inherent in a single test and therefore provides an assessment of CFS related disability consistent with both medical and legal considerations.
