Cardiovascular Disease Risk: Screening With Electrocardiography
Release Date: June 2018
|Adults at low risk of CVD events|
The USPSTF recommends against screening with resting or exercise electrocardiography (ECG) to prevent cardiovascular disease (CVD) events in asymptomatic adults at low risk of CVD events.
|Adults at intermediate or high risk of CVD events|
The USPSTF concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening with resting or exercise ECG to prevent CVD events in asymptomatic adults at intermediate or high risk of CVD events.
See the Clinical Considerations section for suggestions for practice regarding the I statement.
