The Be KYnd to your Heart Foundation at Chapman is hosting a screening on Saturday, November 4, 2023.This
free event will be held from 9am-4pm in the Argyros Forum bldg. room 119A & 119B at Chapman University.
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
