Free EKG Test

Protect young athletes with a Pediatric EKG screening!

Schedule a Test

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.

Nicklaus Children's Hospital offers free pediatric electrocardiograms (ECG or EKG) screenings to middle and high school sports participants in the community. Truly a gift to your family, a patient’s ability to receive a free EKG test is not conditioned on his or her ordering any other item or service from Nicklaus Children's Hospital, or its Medical Staff.
Thanks to the support of collaborators in the community, such as the Breanna Vergara Foundation, the hospital coordinates EKG screenings at local schools, dance studios, sports teams to bring these lifesaving screenings to children and young adults in their communities.
