Heart Screenings

Is your child’s heart healthy?

 

Is a simple sport physical enough?

 

One high school aged athlete suffers a Sudden Cardiac Arrest every three days in the U.S. The leading cause of death in young athletes is an undetected heart condition. The best way to detect these heart conditions is through a heart screening using an ECG (Electrocardiogram), and in some cases an Echocardiogram (ultrasound) of the heart.

 

The Chase Morris Foundation in partnership with a medical core group of committed sports medicine and cardiology physicians conduct ON-SITE heart screenings for adolescents and young adults ages 14-24. Screenings consists of a Heart Health Survey asking about possible signs and symptoms or family history of a heart condition. An ECG is performed that analyzes the electrical signals of the heart. In some cases a limited physical exam or Echocardiogram of the heart is conducted. Cardiologists and sports physicians experienced in heart screens review the results on site.

 

SPONSOR A STUDENT

The screenings students receive would normally cost in excess of $1,500, however the Chase Morris Foundation is committed to offering these screenings at little or no cost, but we need your assistance to help students receive these low cost screenings.  For a small donation of $100 you can sponsor an athlete for a heart screening.
