In early 2015, ”an international group of experts in sports cardiology, inherited cardiac disease, and sports medicine convened…to update contemporary standards for ECG interpretation in athletes.” They sought “to define and revise ECG interpretation standards…and to develop a clear guide to the proper evaluation of ECG abnormalities in athletes”. The consensus statement covers normal ECG findings in athletes, borderline ECG findings in athletes, and abnormal ECG findings in athletes. The document includes several informative tables and figures.
