Free EKG Test
Protect young athletes with a Pediatric EKG screening!
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, is reaching out to the region’s young athletes by offering free pediatric electrocardiograms (ECG or EKG) testing to middle and high school sports participants. 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.
