Free EKG Test
Protect the young athletes with a Pediatric EKG screening!
Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, is reaching out to the region’s young athletes by offering free pediatric EKG testing to middle and high school sports participants. Truly a gift to your family, a patient’s ability to receive a free EKG is not conditioned on his or her ordering any other item or service from Nicklaus Children's Hospital, formerly Miami Children's Hospital, or its Medical Staff.
Keeping young athletes safe
The leading cause of sudden death among young athletes is sudden cardiac death (SCD). Every three days in the U.S., a student athlete dies of SCD. Usually there are no advance signs or symptoms.
Dr. Anthony Rossi, Director of Cardiac Critical Care talks about the importance of having a heart healthy student athlete, why an EKG screening is important and how you can get a free EKG.
