Alarming, considering 1 in 300 youth has an undetected heart condition that puts them at risk for sudden cardiac arrest, with more than half of youth stricken presenting with missed or misdiagnosed symptoms. New pediatric care guidelines recommend all youth be screened during checkups and preparticipation sports physicals, which requires practitioners to understand how to conduct a comprehensive physical and history by being familiar with warning signs and family risk factors as well as recommended diagnostic follow-up.
