Link To and Excerpt From The 2021 AHA Diagnosis and Management Of Myocarditis In Children

Note to myself: This is an excellent review. However, for primary care physicians, our job is to recognize potentially critical illnesses at the earliest opportunity and get the patient to an emergency department.

The best resource on recognizing possible myocarditis at the earliest opportunity is, I think, Dr. Sean Fox‘s post,  Myocarditis, FEBRUARY 28, 2014 from Pediatric EM Morsels.

In this post I link to and excerpt from Diagnosis and Management of Myocarditis in
Children: A Scientific Statement From the American Heart Association [Full-Text PDF]. Originally published, 7 Jul 2021.

All that follows is from the above AHA statement.
