Abstract

Dobutamine stress testing is an important non-invasive method for evaluating patients with known or suspected coronary artery disease who are unable to adequately exercise. We present a case of a paradoxical, progressive bradycardia occurring with increasing doses of dobutamine that resulted in stress test interruption. (Cardiol J 2012; 19, 1: 79–80)
