Did You Know?

  • 20 minutes is the time it takes to conduct a heart screening?
  • Any active teen, ages 14-18, is eligible for our screening. 
  • CHF screenings are free, a comparable screening in a cardiologist's office would cost approximately $700.
  • 1 in 250 high school students is at risk of a serious cardiac condition known to cause Sudden Cardiac Death.
  • Standard sports physical examinations do not include cardiac screenings with ECG and limited ECHO.

Basic Information

  • Championship Hearts screens students, ages 14-18, for Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM). Generally, one screening after age 15 is sufficient, unless cardiac symptoms are present.
  • HCM causes a thickening of the heart wall, and can lead to obstruction of blood flow and an erratic heartbeat.
  • HCM typically does not present any symptoms.
  • HCM is the leading cause of sudden cardiac death in young people. HCM effects roughly 1 in 500 people. 
Cardiovascular disease is the second leading medical cause of death in children and adolescents in the United States.* In the United States alone, one young competitive athlete dies every three days from an unrecognized cardiovascular disease.* *www.parentheartwatch.org
