American Academy of Pediatrics/American Heart Association Clarification of Statement on Cardiovascular Evaluation and Monitoring of Children and Adolescents With Heart Disease Receiving Medications for ADHD
Date:5/16/2008

ain one.

-- Treatment of a patient with ADHD should not be withheld because an ECG

is not done. The child's physician is the best person to make the

assessment about whether there is a need for an ECG.

-- Medications that treat ADHD have not been shown to cause heart

conditions nor have they been demonstrated to cause sudden cardiac

death. However, some of these medications can increase or decrease

heart rate and blood pressure. While these side effects are not usually

considered dangerous, they should be monitored in children with heart

conditions as the physician feels necessary.

An erratum to the statement has been developed to clarify the language and to assure that the intent is clear to all readers. This is available at:

http://circ.ahajournals.org/cgi/content/full/CIRCULATIONAHA.107.189473/ DC1.

This clarification has been endorsed by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, the American College of Cardiology, Children and Adults with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and the National Initiative for Children's Healthcare Quality.
