Coronary Heart Disease: Screening with Electrocardiography in Adults at Intermediate or High Risk

Description of Resource: 
The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) concludes that the current evidence is insufficient to assess the balance of benefits and harms of screening with resting or exercise electrocardiography for the prediction of coronary heart disease events in asymptomatic adults who are at intermediate or high risk for such events. This is an I statement, which means evidence is lacking, of poor quality, or conflicting, and the balance of benefits and harms cannot be determined.
