Fig 1. The decision tree represents both strategies: “ECG screening” at hospital admission versus “No ECG screening”.

Probabilities of patients belonging to a QT category are identical in both strategies, as the risk of SCD after a TdP event. The probability of developing TdP is based on the severity of QT prolongation and is reduced by LQT detection in the ECG strategy. For patients remaining alive, the model assumes a life expectancy of 25 years.
