Free Youth Heart Screening October 28, 2023

Serving the Campbell Community and Beyond


WE HAVE CLOSED REGISTRATION BUT WALK INS WILL BE TAKEN AT THE EVENT 9AM-11:30AM AND 1PM-3:30PM


We are excited to share that on Saturday, October 28, 2023, the Kyle J. Taylor Foundation (KJTF) in collaboration with City of Campbell and the Campbell Police Department are hosting a Free Youth Heart Screening for the Campbell community and beyond.  The screening is open to anyone ages 12-25 years of age at NO COST. This free event will be held from 9am-4pm in the Orchard City Banquet Hall at Campbell Community Center (1 W Campbell Ave, Campbell, CA 95008)

 

These screenings are so important! The current annual physical examinations or sports pre-participation physical exams miss about 85-90% of the issues that can cause Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in children and young adults.  The issues that cause SCA in young people must be seen on an electrocardiogram (EKG) because they are structural or electrical issues that cannot be heard through a stethoscope. The EKG is a simple test that records the electrical activity of the heart using small sticky electrode patches that are attached to the skin of the chest.  EKGs are quick, easy and completely painless.

 

Sudden Cardiac Arrest Risk in Children and Young Adults:

·      Leading cause of death of student athletes

·      Leading cause of death on school campuses

·      1 in 300 youth have an undiagnosed heart condition that puts them at risk for SCA

 

Cardiologists will be volunteering their time to review the results of the EKGs and make referrals as needed.  The screening includes cardiac risk assessment, EKG, and doctor review, which generally takes about 40 minutes to complete.
