Free EKG Testing…… Every three days in the United States, a child suffers from Sudden Cardiac Arrest.  Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) occurs when the heart unexpectedly experiences an electrical malfunction, which leads to an irregular heartbeat. The use of a pediatric electrocardiogram (EKG) is critical to help diagnose asymptomatic heart defects, which may not otherwise be evident.  SCA can be the first sign of a heart condition, with over half of the children experiencing no symptoms at all prior to fatal cardiac arrest.
Nicklaus Children’s Hospital has created a life-saving initiative for children.  The focus of this unique heart screening series is to create an awareness of the importance of pediatric heart screenings in an effort to identify children at risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).
Harrison’s Hearty Helpers led by Miami Country Day School’s student “Harrison Breslow” has enlisted the help of Nicklaus Children’s Hospital to bring FREE EKG screenings to our Miami Country Day School students in grades 6-12.  The voluntary heart screenings will conveniently take place on Wednesday, March 6th between 9am-5pm in the Health Room.
Earlier today we published the online form “EKG Screening Permission (form 1 of 2)” to your MyCountryDay parent account (http://www.miamicountryday.org/MyCountryDay). This form only needs to be completed by one parent or guardian and will be available through Friday, March 1st.  Once you complete the screening permission form, you will be presented a link to download a second form required by the hospital to provide a medical background to be taken into consideration while they perform the actual tests. Please complete both forms no later than Friday, March 1st.
If you have any questions, please contact Chuck Sennett, Athletic Director, at 305-779-7249 or Yvette Cintron, School Nurse, at 305-779-7261.
