Event Details

BASIC INFORMATION

♥ AugustHeart and Championship Hearts Foundation screens young athletes, ages 14-18, for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). Generally, one screening after age 15 is sufficient, unless cardiac symptoms are present.

♥ HCM causes a thickening of the heart wall, and can lead to obstruction of blood flow and an erratic heartbeat.

♥ HCM typically does not present any symptoms.

♥ HCM is the leading cause of sudden cardiac death in young people.

♥ HCM effects roughly 1 in 500.


SCREENING PROCESS

♥ A parental waiver must be signed in order for the athlete to receive a screening.

♥ Athletes should wear loose fitting clothing.

♥ Screening includes a 12-lead Electrocardiogram (ECG) and a limited 2-D Echocardiogram (ECHO).

♥ The screening process typically takes approximately 20 minutes per student.

♥ Screenings are offered at no charge.

♥ Athletes may have the option to participate in the Texas Adolescent Athlete Heart Screening Registry (TAAHSR) research study. To participate, athletes and parents are informed of data collected, can ask questions, and must sign appropriate Consent documents. Study receives oversight from the Baylor College of Medicine Institutional Review Board.
