Coronary Heart Disease: Screening With Electrocardiography in Adults at Low Risk

Description of Resource: 
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommends against screening with resting or exercise electrocardiography for the prediction of coronary heart disease events in asymptomatic adults at low risk for such events. This is a D recommendation, which means the USPSTF recommends against the service. There is moderate or high certainty that the service has no net benefit or that the harms outweigh the benefits.
