Register now for a free heart screening for your teen age 14-18. Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of non-traumatic death in youth, happening without warning and proving fatal in 92% of cases. The heart screenings include an electrocardiogram (ECG) and if necessary, an echocardiogram (ECHO). These tests allow cardiologists to evaluate the structure and electrical activity of the heart to identify students who might be at risk of a cardiac event.
