Today over 150 Olympia High School students were screened to make sure
that they were not at risk for an underlying heart condition.
High School partnered with Young Hearts for Life and Advocate BroMenn
to offer the free cardiac screenings to all high school students.
student that signed up for the screening received an ECG
(electrocardiogram) to test the health of their heart and identify any
abnormalities that could be risk factors for sudden cardiac death.
painless test took less than 10 minutes and has the ability to detect
60% of heart condition abnormalities that a stethoscope cannot.
want to thank YH4L and Advocate BroMenn for all their efforts to
provide such a wonderful opportunity for the students of Olympia High
