Evaluating cardiovascular presentations: What does an electrocardiogram have to offer?

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review

Abstract

The general pediatrician remains the key to the timely recognition and treatment of cardiovascular disorders, particularly those that present acutely and may require immediate attention. In the evaluation of these cardiovascular urgencies, ancillary studies such as the electrocardiogram continue to be important, readily available tools that can aide in the diagnostic process. It is thus incumbent on the general practitioner to foster the skill necessary to employ such tools reliably, particularly in the setting of urgent evaluations. At the same time, recognition of the limitations of such testing will help both in the acute setting and in the understanding of their application in population settings.
