In brief: It depends
It is not typical to require a stress test after a cardioversion.
Sometimes it is important to evaluate for possible underlying causes of a rhythm problem including coronary artery disease. At other times, it is important to evaluate for possible side effects to antiarrhythmic drugs via stress testing.
