CRY Heart Screening for 14-35 year olds

Saturday 24th September 2022 at Weston Village Hall

PLEASE VISIT THE WEBSITE AGAIN IN JANUARY WHEN YOU WILL BE ABLE TO BOOK YOUR PLACE

It can be hard to believe that a person who appears fit and healthy may be at risk from heart problems. However, every week in the UK at least 12 apparently fit and healthy young people aged 35 and under die from undiagnosed heart conditions.

CRY has a mobile screening team of medically qualified personnel, who will visit sports clubs, schools and other community venues on request, to screen people between the ages of 14 and 35. In very rare circumstances, children under the age of 14 might be screened by special request. This is because ECG Testing on pre-pubescent children is inconclusive. Should you have any questions about the screening this link will hopefully answer them answer them http://www.c-r-y.org.uk/category/screening/faq/

The CRY Screening Team consists of a Doctor, an Echo Technician, one or more ECG Technicians, an Administrator and a Screening Manager who will set up the equipment on site.

Any person who is considered to have an abnormal ECG will be given an ECHO on the day; and some people may also be invited to have a full cardiac evaluation at a later date.

After the date of the screening, every person’s ECG/ECHO, completed health questionnaire and consent form will be forwarded to CRY’s expert doctors for research purposes – increasing the understanding of the conditions and ultimately helping to reduce the number of young sudden cardiac deaths.

The aim of this screening is to help prevent the death of 12 young people aged 14-35 that die of a Cardiac Arrest every week in the UK alone.
