Youth Heart Screenings Can Save Lives
Peace of Mind for Parents; Healthy Hearts for Kids
No parent wants to deal with the consequences of losing a child, yet undiagnosed heart conditions are estimated to claim the lives of 7,000 kids each year (under 18). That’s over 135 deaths each week in the US. The sad part is, with early diagnosis, most can be prevented.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest:
#1 Cause of Death in Young Athletes
According to the March of Dimes, over 40,000 children are born every year with some kind of a heart defect. This large number is due to many factors, including family history and influencers during pregnancy. While many of these defects are minor and pose no immediate risk, a certain percentage of them are life threatening unless diagnosed.
We have all heard stories about youth that are seemingly in excellent health, collapsing suddenly, only to later learn it was caused by an unknown heart condition. Sudden cardiac arrest is the #1 killer of our young athletes, and the second leading cause of death in all kids.
Early Identification is Key
What is the solution? Early identification of heart abnormities is the absolute best way to save lives. Athletic Testing Solutions (ATS) is setting the standard in Youth Heart Screening with the ATS Heart Check, specifically designed to identify kids at risk. Our programs are under the oversight of Board Certified physicians and screenings are done by certified medical professionals utilizing state-of-the-art equipment.
Thorough Assessment of Your Child
We go the extra mile to give you a thorough assessment. Each child’s screening includes a Family History & Health Questionnaire, Blood Pressure, EKG, AND Echocardiogram (ultrasound of the heart). By including the echocardiogram, ATS is utilizing a comprehensive look at both structural and electrical functions of the heart to determine your child’s heart health. Every participant receives a complete analysis of the results as well as the option of additional copies supplied to a physician of their choice.
