The angiographic, echocardiographic, and electrocardiographic correlates of ST-segment elevation daring high-dose dobutamine-atropine stress were prospectively looked at in a group of high-risk patients. Unlike exercise- induced ST elevation. ST-segment elevation with dobutamine-atropine stress, while indicating transmural ischemia, did not increase rate of arrhythmias and hence by itself may not be an indication to terminate the test.
