Dobutamine echocardiography (DE) has been shown to be safe, feasible, and accurate for identification of coronary artery disease (CAD) in mixed populations. The purpose of this study was to examine gender differences in physiologic response and accuracy of DE. We studied 2,886 consecutive DEs, performed in 2,748 patients, 1,209 of whom (44%) were women. A standard incremental protocol (5 to 40 microg/kg/min in 3-minute stages) was followed by atropine and/or an additional stage with 50 microg… CONTINUE READING
