FINDING A HEART ABNORMALITY OR VASCULAR CONDITION DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN THE END OF SPORTS FOR A YOUNG ATHLETE. BUT PLAYING WITH AN UNDETECTED CONDITION COULD LEAD TO THE END OF A LIFE.
Cappo Health Partners is the only company that focuses on the total cardiovascular health of your student athletes. Our qualified technologists and board certified reading cardiologists, pediatric cardiologists, and radiologists are trained to identify the specific cardiovascular conditions that can impact an athlete’s life.
Studies indicate the risk for sudden cardiac arrest is three times higher in competitive athletes than non-athletes. For students who participate in high-endurance activities, the risk for sudden cardiac arrest is significantly higher compared to those individuals who are not active. That’s why it is important to have your marching band members, ROTC, cheerleading squads, and dance teams tested as well as your traditional sports teams.
