How to interpret the ECG of athletes and young adults - Online


Synopsis and aims: The practical ECG course is focused on the ECG interpretation in young individuals (14-35 years) and in athletes. The spectrum of cardiac conditions potentially detected by the ECG in the young is broad with significant differences with the ones affecting older patients. Furthermore, ECG interpretation in athletes requires careful analysis to distinguish physiological changes related to athletic training from findings suggestive of an underlying pathological condition. Cardiovascular-related sudden death is the leading cause of mortality in athletes during sport. The 12-lead ECG in increasingly used as a screening tool as it may raise suspicion of most of the disorders associated with an increased risk of sudden cardiac death, such as cardiomyopathies and primary electrical diseases. Therefore, ECG interpretation is an important skill for anyone involved in the cardiovascular care of young and athletic individuals.

The aim of the course is to equip participants with knowledge regarding the interpretation of the ECG of a young or athletic individual, so they can accurately differentiate findings suggestive of a potentially lethal cardiovascular disorder from normal variants or features of benign physiological adaptation.

The course is highly interactive through Q&A sessions and Multiple choice questions supported case-based learning.
