BJSM Friday Podcast #418
Dr. Rachel Lampert, MD joins host Devin McFadden, MD on AMSSM’s Sports Medcast (T: @TheAMSSM) to discuss athletic participation in athletes with cardioverter-defibrilators for known cardiac abnormalities.
In this 20 minute conversation Dr. Lampert addresses the following topics:
– What are the common causes of sudden cardiac death in athletes?
– What is the data to support disqualifying patients with known cardiac disease (cardiomyopathies and channelopathies) from sports, and could they potentially participate safely?
– How will future studies impact the way we practice further?
