Pediatrics (AAP)AAP: All Youth Should Be Screened for Cardiac Risk

The recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) are an update to the group’s 2012 policy statement in an effort to better equip physicians with the necessary knowledge to accurately screen, evaluate, and manage the risk of both sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) and sudden cardiac death (SCD) in youth. Screening for all children, regardless of athletic status, should be completed at least every three years.
