Up to 100 sudden deaths occur among high school and college athletes each year in the United States, most commonly resulting from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and other cardiac disorders. Studies have shown that preparticipation screening examinations that include a 12-lead electrocardiogram, which is not currently required in the United States, can identify asymptomatic athletes with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. The current dilemma is how the United States, with its large population and emphasis on reducing health care costs, can realistically implement an effective prescreening process to identify these athletes.
