The ECG is the most common cardiovascular diagnostic test. Last month, JAMA Interal Medicine published a meta-analysis assessing the accuracy of physicians’ or medical students’ ECG interpretations.The pooled accuracy for pretraining assessments was 42% for medical students, 56% for residents, 69% for practicing physicians, and 75% for cardiologists. So physicians at all training levels had deficiencies in ECG interpretation, even after educational interventions!
