moderate ST depression

My 51 year old husband  who has had a severe spinal cord injury and right heart failure had an EKG yesterday. It shows sinus rhythm, nonspecific intraventricular conduction delay, and moderate ST depression.  Cardiologist read report and is ordering a stress test.  Should I be concerned?

I have right and left heart failure, and always a ECG shows a problem.  I'm not a doctor or health professional, but do know that the stress test will be much more specific.  Keep in mind, the ECG tracks the heart for only eight seconds.  Certainly a ST depression always gets the attention of doctors, in my experience.
I'm sure you are already concerned, but it will be good to get more information from a much better test.  I hope you keep us informed.
