Is your child’s heart healthy?
Is a simple sport physical enough?
One high school aged athlete suffers a Sudden Cardiac Arrest every three days in the U.S! The leading cause of death in young athletes on the playing field is an undetected heart condition. The best way to detect these heart conditions is through a heart screening using a ECG (Electrocardiogram), and in some cases an Echocardiogram (ultrasound) of the heart.
Nick of Time Foundation in partnership with the University of Washington Medical Center conduct ON-SITE heart screenings for adolescents and young adults ages 14-24. Screenings consists of a Heart Health Survey asking about possible signs & symptoms or family history of a heart condition. An ECG is performed that analyzes the electrical signals of the heart. In some cases a limited physical exam or Echocardiogram of the heart is conducted. The results are reviewed on site by cardiologists and sports physicians experienced in heart screens.
