BACKGROUND Afterload is expected to increase with pneumatic compression of the lower extremities. There are left ventricular (LV) wall stress, which is the most important factor determining myocardial oxygen demand, will also increase, leading to an increase in the sensitivity of dobutamine stress echocardiography (DSE) or a shortened time to a positive response. METHODS AND RESULTS In 40 patients who underwent DSE and were anticipating undergoing coronary angiography (CAG), the imaging was… CONTINUE READING
