  • Overview

    Although sudden death in the pediatric population is rare, there has been a great deal of discussion recently over the possibility of an increase in risk of sudden cardiac death among individuals taking stimulant medication for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Dr. Patrick Frias, a pediatric cardiologist and electrophysiologist at Sibley Heart Center Cardiology in Atlanta and associate professor of pediatrics at Emory University School of Medicine, explores this discussion with host Dr. Jennifer Shu. How can we best evaluate our patients' risk for sudden death before initiating medical treatment for ADHD, and how often should we monitor their cardiovascular status?
