Dobutamine Stress Echocardiogram

This is for those patients who cannot walk, like very obese persons, or people with painful knees and patients suffering from Heart Valve Disease.

In this procedure, the heart is artificially ‘tired’ by medicines like dobutamine. So while the patient lies on the table, his heart beats faster and pumps out blood forcefully because of medicine. In such situations, the diseases not seen in a normal ECG and Echo get detected.
