Free EKG Screening
Protect the young athletes you know and love with a free pediatric EKG 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, 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.
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.
