New study suggests that electrocardiograms may not be the right tool for preparticipation screening...

There is ongoing debate as to whether or not young athletes should undergo preparticipation screening, using an electrocardiogram (ECG), to reduce the risk of sudden cardiac death. A new study indicates that preparticipation ECGs are difficult to interpret and as a result, the wrong guidance may be given.

Should we have preparticipation ECG screening in young athletes?

Will Nicolson, University of Leicester, UK, comments on the findings from the two new studies on electrocardiograms for preparticipation screening in young athletes published in the Journal of Pediatrics and Circulation. He said that according to the results "it is possible that preparticipation ECG screening would cause more long-term deaths through inactivity than it saved through appropriate diagnosis in the short term."
