Question 11 of the August 15, 2000, “Clinical Quiz,” pertaining to the article “Cardiovascular Screening of Student Athletes,” is misleading. The first page of the “Preparticipation Physical Evaluation” form includes a question to the student athlete: “Have you ever been told you have a heart murmur?” The second page of the form, on which the examining physician would note abnormal findings, does not include a specific item for recognition of a heart murmur. Although the correct answers remain A, C and D, the question should have emphasized that the information described in choices C and D is not included on the physician's page of the form. The corrected question is reprinted below.

Q11.Which of the following important history and physical findings recommended by the American Heart Association is/are not currently found on the Preparticipation Physical Evaluation form or the physician's page of that form?

  • A. Family history of heart disease.

  • B. Vision assessment.

  • C. Recognition of a heart murmur on physical examination.

  • D. Recognition of the physical stigmata of Marfan syndrome.
