My husband (46 yrs old), has a very low pulse rate (38-45) (His normal is around 55-65) and is going through a battery of tests. Yesterday he had a sonogram of his heart, and was then fitted with a testing device simular to EKG to wear for 24 hours. He is supposed to keep a diary of goings on for the Drs to compare to the EKG.
We have argued this because he thinks it won't matter. But if they are looking at the test results and see weird things going on for every time he smokes, and he doesn't admit that he smokes or write it on the diary, then they might think something unusual is going on with the heart.
My question is......if he smokes pot while this device is working, will something weird show on the EKG?
Thanks a bunch,
