Abstract

Although a gradual increase in heart rate (HR) during dobutamine stress testing (DST) is desired, few data exists regarding whether this is similarly achieved in patients of widely varying body mass index (BMI). Whether difference in BMI contributes to variation in the hemodynamic and symptomatic response to dobutamine is also unknown.
