Even teens who seem perfectly healthy may have hidden heart problems. Though the percentage is small, kids with undetected heart defects are at risk of sudden cardiac arrest.

A simple screening can detect heart conditions such as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, the most common cause of sudden death in athletes.

Led by experts on our pediatric cardiology team and supervised by cardiologists, our 15-minute screenings are designed for student athletes and otherwise active youth. It's painless, noninvasive and educational, and includes:

  • An electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • A heart health questionnaire
  • Blood pressure check
  • Diagnostic results report (including a recommendation for follow-up, if needed)
  • Information on nutrition and chest-compression-only CPR
  • Height, weight and body mass index measurements
  • Driving distracted simulator

A physician will go over the results at the screening, and you'll have time to ask questions. The screening does not take the place of the sports physical typically required for young athletes.
