PHYSICAL EXAMS FALL SHORT
We check our kids eyes and ears in school. What about their hearts? Research shows that adding an electrocardiogram (ECG) to a physical exam and medical history significantly increases the chances of discovering a potentially-fatal heart condition.
The medical community is slow to embrace these findings, so we exist. We are a collection of organization dedicated to providing heart screenings for students. We are nonprofits and for profits. We provide electrocardiograms and/or echocardiograms. We embrace the International Consensus Standards for ECG Interpretation (formerly Seattle Criteria).
We all believe that heart screenings should be a standard of care.
