Event Details

BASIC INFORMATION  

♥ AugustHeart screens students for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). 

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

♥ 1 in 250 students are at risk of sudden cardiac death.

♥ 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 affects roughly 1 in 500 people.

 

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. For those choosing to make an optional donation, $25 helps offset the cost to screen a student.
