Final Recommendation Statement: Screening for Cardiovascular Disease Risk With Electrocardiography
June 12, 2018 – The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force released today a final recommendation statement on screening for cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk with electrocardiography (ECG). The Task Force recommends against ECG screening in adults at low risk for CVD and finds insufficient evidence on ECG screening in those at medium or high risk. To view the recommendation and the evidence on which it is based, please go here. The final recommendation statement can also be found in the June 12 online issue of JAMA.
