Why Preventative Heart Screenings are Important:

"Preventative heart screenings are a vital part of health and wellness in our youth. In addition to the yearly sports physicals that we obtain on our kids participating in organized sports, Safebeat preventative heart screenings offer the opportunity to screen all children whether they play sports or not. In addition to Safebeat obtaining EKGs on all these children, medical and family histories and vital signs are taken which often are just as important to finding cardiac problems as the EKG itself."
