Cardiac Screenings will be offered at Frisco High on December 7th!

Nov 16, 2017

Cardiac Screenings will be offered at Frisco High on December 7th.  Frisco ISD cares about your child’s heart health, so we are partnering with Who We Play For to screen students with an ECG (electrocardiogram).  An ECG, also known as an EKG, can detect issues in the heart that can be missed in a standard physical. Please consider signing up your child for this very important screening.  A simple cardiac screening can help detect problems before they become major medical issues. While we recommend all active students get an ECG, you should definitely be screened if you:

  • compete in high impact sports that increases heart rate for long periods of time
  • have a family history indicating that there is a heart disease risk
  • get dizziness during athletics
  • experience fainting spells or weakness while participating
  • get shortness of breath that does not clear quickly
  • get chest pain while participating

The screening is available for $20 per student. The opportunity is open to students in grades 8-12, including all athletes and those who participate in band, drill team or cheerleading. FRISCO ISD CONSENT FORM.  NO WORKOUT PRIOR TO THE SCREENING, YOU MAY WORKOUT AFTER.  Please let your coach know if you plan on attending so we can get a count of students. 

December 7th, 2017 7:30-10 am at Frisco High School's Indoor Athletic Training Room
