Context Estimates suggest that about 1 in 220 000 young athletes experience sudden cardiac death each year. The European Society of Cardiology and the International Olympic Committee recommend that presport participation screening include electrocardiography (ECG), but screening in the United States typically does not include ECG. Contribution In this study of 510 student athletes, the addition of routine ECG to history and physical examination improved the detection of echocardiographically… CONTINUE READING
