"About 8 times more deaths occur in non-atelteic kids than atheletickids, so I believe all kids should be screened" Dr. Sunita Ferns Wolfson Children's Hospital
LAKE PARK, GA, November 15, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- SafeBeat is setting the Gold Standard in Preventative Heart Screenings in America's youth through an initiative utilizing state of the art screening protocols, innovative education and strategic partnerships. SafeBeat's goal is to provide affordable, high quality heart screenings at every school where there is a need. SafeBeat is the answer to help prevent the # 1 killer of student athletes and students on school campuses ...sudden cardiac arrest!
Every year more than 7,000 youth between ages 6-18 Die from SUDDEN CARDIAC ARREST (SAC) that in many cases are Symptomless Deaths. This would be approximately 20 children needlessly dying every day from mostly treatable conditions that have gone undetected. Increased awareness of The Importance of Heart Screenings increases screening participation, having a long-term impact to make a difference and save a life and create a healthier generation.
The vast majority of schools will not receive preventative heart -screenings without SafeBeat, especially the under-insured and uninsured. Facts have proven that 1 out of every 300 children has a cardiac arrhythmia syndrome, most of these being undetected prior to screening. Once diagnosed, these syndromes can be monitored and treated.
