Identifying athletes at risk of SCD can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. In a video originally posted on | Medscape Cardiology, Stephen C. Hammill, M.D., talks to Michael J. Ackerman, M.D., Ph.D., and Douglas L. Packer, M.D., about the many challenges involved, including why we need to think carefully about ECG screening and the importance of a proper history and physical for all patients, not just athletes.
