Interpretation of 12 Lead ECG in the Athlete
Cardiovascular remodeling in the conditioned athlete is frequently associated with physiological ECG changes.
Abnormalities, however, may be detected which represent expression of an underlying heart disease that puts the athlete at risk of arrhythmic cardiac arrest during sports.
It is mandatory that ECG changes resulting from intensive physical training are distinguished from abnormalities which reflect a potential cardiac pathology.
Dr Ubaid’s aim of this presentation is to provide General Practitioners with a modern approach to correct interpretation of 12-lead ECG in the athlete and emerging understanding of incomplete penetrance of inherited cardiovascular disease.
