Free Heart Screenings
On Saturday, Feb. 2, from 8 a.m. to noon, Heart Hospital of Austin will offer free heart screenings for students ages 14 through 18. The screening will include a 12-lead electrocardiogram (EKG) and a limited two-dimensional echocardiogram, or ultrasound of the heart, to detect hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM). HCM is a serious genetic heart condition in which the heart muscle thickens. It affects one in 500 student athletes every year, often without any warning or symptoms. Left untreated, it can be fatal (as you may remember, according to reports, this is what Ben Breedlove-the Westlake teen who died in 2011-had). An EKG and echocardiogram, which take about five minutes each, are non-invasive and painless screening tools. Results of the screenings will be reviewed by a cardiologist immediately after the tests are administered.
During the event, Heart Hospital of Austin will also offer CPR instruction and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) demonstrations for attendees.
Heart Hospital of Austin is located at 3801 North Lamar Blvd. Appointments are required. Each student must have a questionnaire filled out by a parent or guardian upon arrival. Those interested can call 512.478.3627 to schedule an appointment, or they can visit HeartHospitalofAustin.com for more information.
