Focus on

Needs Assessment

Interpretation of the athlete’s electrocardiogram remains a challenge for most physicians and allied health professionals involved in the athlete’s care. Participant numbers in respective sessions at ESC Preventive Cardiology congress and ESC Congress are a testament to that.

This webinar will offer a step-by-step interpretation of the athlete’s ECG, based on our recommendations published in 2017.

Learning Objectives

After watching the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Interpret an athlete’s ECG by applying the International ECG criteria;
  • Differentiate ECG features consistent with athletic adaptation from those suggestive of pathology; and
  • Determine necessary investigations in athletes with specific ECG changes suggestive of pathology.
