Initial screening for coronary artery disease in aircrew

Initial screening for coronary artery disease in aircrew
All aircrew, especially those over the age of 40 years, should be periodically screened for cardiovascular risk using population-appropriate risk estimators that include family history and non-fatal and fatal end points, and a resting ECG.
