EKG testingLongview High School is taking the extra step to protect your child by providing EKG and echocardiography testing for students aged 12-25 on school grounds on Saturday, October 14th.

The testing detects heart abnormalities that can cause Sudden Cardiac Arrest. According to the American Heart Association, every 3 days in the US, a young athlete dies from SCA.

Wimbledon Athletics will perform EKGs and echocardiograms to detect heart conditions that can put your child at risk and vascular ultrasounds to identify vascular conditions common to athletes (such as blood clots). All tests are non-invasive, and the privacy of your child is maintained.

There are no upfront costs – your health insurance will be billed for the testing, and waivers are available to eliminate balance due for deductible.

For more information and to register please visit WimbledonHealthPartners.com/Longview or call the Athletic Office at (903) 381-3950.
