Sudden cardiac death is a rare, but devastating, event in the young population. Arrhythmia is the mechanism of death in many cases. In addition to clinical history, noninvasive and invasive tests can be used to identify patients who are at risk. Although these tools are not perfect, they can prove valuable if used in proper clinical circumstances. An overview of these tests is presented.
