Jon Drezner, BJSM’s senior associate editor for sports cardiology, discusses prevention of sudden cardiac death. Jon discusses where ECG fits into screening, training sport physicians to confidently interpret ECGs, and the utility of automated external defibrillators.
Jon is also president-elect of the American Medical Society of Sports Medicine, and he gives us a preview of the 2012 annual meeting in Atlanta (April 21-25).
