Help stop sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) by having your student/athlete and family screened at cardiac screenings by Heartfelt. Heartfelt is proud to be partnering with Newport Beach Junior Lifeguards to offer cardiac screenings for a donation of $85 per person. They screen adults and kids, ages five and up.
The echocardiogram (cardiac ultrasound) and electrocardiogram (EKG) are the best tools for the detection of the general risks of sudden cardiac death. These tests typically cost $1,500 and are not usually covered by insurance.
A young athlete dies from SCA every three days. SCA is the #1 killer of women and kills 450,000 people annually.
