Free Heart Screenings Are Saving Lives

Each year thousands of healthy kids suffer sudden cardiac arrest and death due to heart conditions that have gone undetected. Many have no prior history of heart disease and are stricken without warning. The real tragedy is that many of these deaths could have been prevented with a quick, affordable, safe, non-invasive and painless test known as an electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG).

To help prevent disabilities and death from sudden cardiac arrest, Saving Young Hearts provides free heart screenings that can detect risk factors and conditions associated with sudden cardiac arrest. The heart screenings include a heart health questionnaire, blood pressure reading, heart sound check, electrocardiogram and in some cases, a limited echocardiogram. The results are reviewed by board certified cardiologists.

Social Discussion spent the day with the Saving Young Hearts volunteers at one of their free heart screenings at Timber Creek High School in Orlando, Florida.
