Medical - Medical: Cardiology / stress test
Spanish term or phrase: TA
This is an abbreviation within a sentence describing results from an exercise stress test (in the context of a myocardial perfusion study). The sentence reads: "Comportamiento normal de la *TA* durante el ejercicio".

Is it correct to assume this is "arterial pressure"? Can I translate this as "normal arterial pressure during the exercise phase"?

Gracias por la ayuda :)
