Dobutamine Stress Echo

 

 

 

Dobutamine Stress Echo

            It is a non-invasive test used to evaluate coronary artery disease in patients who are unable to exercise on a treadmill. A physician uses an intravenous medication called dobutamine. Dobutamine causes the heart to beat faster and will mimic the effects of exercise on the heart.

 

 

 

What are the preparations for Dobutamine Stress Echo?

-               - Do not eat or drink for 4 hours prior to the test. This will help prevent the possibility of nausea which may accompany the infusion of dobutamine.

-               - Make sure to wear a two-piece outfit. You may need to undress from the waist up and put on a hospital gown.

-              - Before the test, you’ll be given a brief explanation of the test and you’ll be asked to sign a consent form. Feel free to ask any questions about the procedure.
