Electrocardiogram Use Varies for Infants With ALTEs

The most common underlying diagnoses related to ALTEs are gastroesophageal reflux and upper respiratory illness. Clinicians also consider cardiac causes, but no standardized method is used to evaluate patients with ALTEs, especially with regard to electrocardiograms (ECGs) as a diagnostic tool.
