Abstract:
Children who participate in competitions or regularly participate in team training should undergo an assessment for capability to partake in sports for early recognition of orthopedic or internistic problems. The assessment of capability to participate in sports should consist of controlling the long-term and family medical history, a comprehensive internistic and orthopedic examination and a 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG). After the introduction of an obligatory standardized sports capability examination in Italy, including a 12-lead ECG, the incidence of sudden death could be reduced by 89 %. However, in most countries and for most forms of sport a preparticipation physical examination before training and competitions is neither obligatory nor standardized. The Austrian Society for Pediatrics and Adolescent Medicine (A-GKJ) and the Austrian Society for Sports Medicine and Prevention (A-GSMP) have therefore published joint recommendations on the performance of a sports preparticipation physical examination. This should be carried out by an experienced physician (e.g. sports physician, specialist for pediatrics and adolescent medicine or pediatric cardiologist) on starting team training in connection with a competition or before participation in a sports competition and should be repeated at least every 2 years.
