August Heart Screening



August Heart screens students for HCM. HCM is the leading cause of sudden cardiac arrest in young people. HCM causes a thickening of the heart wall, and can lead to obstruction of blood flow and an erratic heart beat. Symptoms are not frequently identified. HCM effects 1 in 500 people.


Screenings are free. A parental waiver must be signed prior to screening. The screening includes a 12-lead ECG and a limited 2-D echocardiogram. The screening process takes about 20 minutes, the entire process (registration, screening, checkout) takes about 45 minutes.
