Public Comment on Draft Recommendation: Screening for Coronary Heart Disease With Electrocardiography
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is inviting public comment on its draft recommendation statement on Screening for Coronary Heart Disease with Electrocardiography (ECG). This draft recommendation is an update of the USPSTF 2004 recommendation. The updated draft recommendation focuses on ECG rather than electron-beam computerized tomography, which is addressed separately in another recommendation (Using Nontraditional Risk Factors in Coronary Heart Disease Risk Assessment).
To provide comments, please go to http://www.uspreventiveservicestaskforce.org/Page/Name/us-preventive-services-task-force-opportunities-for-public-comment. The opportunity to comment on this draft recommendation statement will be available until October 25, 2011.
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force is a national, independent panel of medical experts that makes recommendations based on scientific evidence to primary care doctors and other health care providers about which clinical prevention services they should offer their patients.
