Cardiac causes of sudden death: Virtual panel discussion of posed questions
Gospe S and Camfield P (2005) Cardiac causes of sudden death: Virtual panel discussion of posed questions. Semin Pediatr Neurol 12:1 67–9.
Abstract: In an attempt to find out what a couple of expert pediatric neurologists do when confronted by children with the symptoms and signs that might suggest a risk for sudden death, we posed six questions. Their answers make interesting reading and provide good guidelines for the evaluation of such children. Dr Vincent read the answers and added a few pointers. The Editor (W.C.A.) also commented.
- Brief discussion by clinicians of the thought processes underlying decisions about diagnostic tests and therapies in children who undergo brief loss of consciousness.
