Our newest course, Preventing a Tragedy That Could Be a Heartbeat Away: Incorporating Cardiac Arrest Risk Assessment Protocol into Your Practice, will provide an in-depth discussion of how you can protect young hearts and equip youth to be their own heart health advocate.

Studies show cardiac consideration is an often overlooked area of assessment for youth and student athletes alike, with practitioners and parents largely unfamiliar with warning signs and risk factors that require follow up. Alarming, considering 1 in 300 youth has an undetected heart condition that puts them at risk, with more than half of youth stricken presenting with missed or misdiagnosed symptoms. As new guidelines recommend youth who’ve had COVID-19 exposure, symptoms or a diagnosis to get a comprehensive cardiac evaluation, now more than ever it’s critical to incorporate evidence-based diagnostic cardiac risk assessment protocol into your practice.
