CAPPO ATHLETICS – PROTECTING THE CARDIOVASCULAR HEALTH OF STUDENT ATHLETES
Undetected cardiovascular abnormalities are a real threat to your players. Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading medical cause of death among young athletes today, and most who die from heart conditions show no warning symptoms at all. Heart issues are not the only concern when it comes to your students. Risk factors common to athletes, such as dehydration, trauma, and long travel, make them more susceptible to underlying vascular conditions such as blood clots, which can be a real danger if left untreated.
Cappo Health is the industry leader in on-site cardiovascular diagnostic testing, and through our athletic division, Cappo Athletics, we bring comprehensive cardiac testing and vascular ultrasound to high schools, colleges, universities, and sports facilities throughout the country to help minimize sudden death among young athletes.
