Hurley Medical Center to Hold Free Student Heart Screenings

Hurley Medical Center will be screening students involved in vigorous activities and organized sports. The Hurley Teen Health Check Student Heart Screening Program will combine a simple health history and noninvasive screening to look for signs of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM) which is a serious heart condition that is the leading cause of death in young athletes. The stress on the heart during strenuous activities puts students at higher risk for sudden death.

Students will undergo a quick screening that will include a review of a health history questionnaire. They will have their blood pressure checked and electrocardiogram (ECG) will be performed. A cardiologist will evaluate each student. The doctor will listen to each student’s heart and may choose to take a quick echocardiogram, a noninvasive picture of the heart.
