Salim Farouk Idriss
Associate Professor of Pediatrics

I am primarily interested in the effects of age and development on cardiac electrical stability. The electrical properties of the myocardium continue to develop and mature after birth. These changes may affect susceptibility to malignant arrhythmias at different ages. I strive to prevent sudden cardiac death in the young (SCDY) through primary prevention (screening) and secondary prevention (CPR and AED use) locally, state-wide, and nationally through academic, public, industry, and government collaboration.
