"Preventative heart screenings are a vital part of health and wellness in our youth. In addition to the yearly sports physicals that we obtain on our kids participating in organized sports, SafeBeat preventative heart screenings offer the opportunity to screen all children whether they play sports or not. In addition to SafeBeat obtaining EKGs on all these children, medical and family histories and vital signs are taken which often are just as important to finding cardiac problems as the EKG itself."
"No study to date has shown that screening by history and physical examination alone is effective in preventing sudden cardiac death or in detecting at risk athletes. ECG screening has demonstrated low false positives and can assist in the detection of deadly conditions. Preventative heart screening programs using ECG coupled with proper interpretation can help reduce SCD risk in athletes."

"There is no question that effective screening does reduce the incidence of sudden cardiac death which is why I believe in regular ECG screening for all middle and high school students."
