The findings were provided today at the ESC Congress 2012 by Dr Andrea Menafoglio from Switzerland. Sport is beneficial for health generally in most people. But for the tiny minority of the population who offers cardiovascular abnormalities, sport could cause harm and very – in one to three per 100 rarely,000 athletes each year – it could lead to sudden cardiac death. ‘The cardiac arrest of a professional sportsman in the field, who represents the essence of physical overall performance, has a profound psychological influence in the community and regularly raises the query of preventing such a dramatic event,’ stated Dr Menafoglio. ‘There is certainly debate about which screening strategies are of help for cardiovascular screening of youthful athletes and among the principal controversies issues the part of ECG in the screening technique.’ He added: ‘Solid data indicate that cardiovascular screening including a resting electrocardiogram can prevent a considerable proportion of the tragic events, and the European Culture of Cardiology and major sports associations recommend such a screening program.The proposal would consider years to handle, but Medicaid managed caution would become mandatory in 2011 in Miami-Dade County. The state’s most-populous county would join five additional counties in a controversial pilot program formerly known as ‘Medicaid Reform.’ If accepted, the proposal would save little cash for the state through the next two years. But House HEALTHCARE Appropriations Chairwoman Denise Grimsley, R-Lake Placid, said moving to a fully managed-care system would provide ‘long-term spending budget predictability’ in the Medicaid plan, which is likely to cost more than $19 billion in the forthcoming fiscal 12 months’ .
