Teen Athlete Cardiac Screening

The TACS program, co-founded in 2006 by the David Heller Foundation and Legacy Health, aims to educate the public about the importance of cardiac screening for young athletes aged 13-19. Screening can detect cardiac conditions such as hypertrophic cardio-myopathy, the most common cause of sudden death in athletes.

Even kids who seem healthy and have passed a physical exam may have heart problems, This can lead to sudden cardiac arrest. Our seventh annual Teen Athlete Cardiac Screening will check students from 13-19 for potential heart problems.

 

2012 Teen Athletic Cardiac Screening

The low-cost screening takes about an hour. It includes an electrocardiogram (ECG), height, weight, body mass index (BMI) measurements and cardiac physical exam. Cardiologists, pediatricians and health care professionals perform the tests. ECG results are read by a pediatric cardiologist. You will recieve your resutls at the screening and there will be time to address any concerns and have your questions answered.
