Can athletes who might be at risk of sudden death be spotted during routine screening history and physical?

In many, if not most cases, "yes," say the editors and contributors – and they tell you how it can be done without expensive tests.

In this hardbound book, 11 outstanding clinicians describe what to listen for on auscultation, the most common causes of sudden death in young (and older) athletes, ECG findings in athletes and when to order more sophisticated tests.

Also discussed are special problems such as mitral valve prolapse, cocaine and the heart, scuba diving, the legal responsibilities of the screening physician and more.
