Your mother's ECG shows RBBB which might be preexisting and not a reason to worry as her ECHO is normal. Regarding dobutamine stress echo she needs to be on fasting from 6 am ( she can have liquids) for the test scheduled at 10 am. Regarding medicines Amlodipine can be skipped and rest all to be continued prior to test.
