Mayo Clinic researchers who analyzed data from 25,000 treadmill stress tests found variations in peak heart rates between men and women and called for a new formula for determining sex-specific maximum heart rates. Other researchers said the idea requires additional study but that the data are timely because the current formula was developed decades ago, when fewer women were included in medical studies.
