die from a heart attack during a dobutamine stress test
Has anyone had a family member die from a heart attack during a dobutamine stress test? My father died in 2005 during a doubutamine stress test. It s an non-invasive test used to eval CAD ( coronary artery disease ) for people who can t exercise on a treadmill. There is only a 1% chance of the test actually causing a heart attack that results in death. I just want to know if someone else has had this experience?
