Robert A. Bruce is known as the “Father of Exercise Cardiology.” He developed the standardized treadmill test for diagnosing and evaluating heart and lung diseases. Dr. Bruce became the first Director of Cardiology at the University of Washington in Seattle in 1950, and he continued as Director for more than 30 years. His multistage test – several stages of progressively greater workloads – became known as the “Bruce Protocol.”
