WHAT IS SMARTBEAT SPORT?
Did you know that a young athlete dies from sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) every 3 days? SCA is the #1 killer of women and kills 450,000 annually. Early detection saves lives. Our SmartBeat Sport test is less than 20 minutes, easy, painless, and one tenth the price of echocardiograms and electrocardiograms. SmartBeat Sport is the student-athlete version of our SmartBeat screening program. It’s a cardiovascular screening program using advanced diagnostic technology that can reveal health problems in young adults. Testing can reveal disturbances in heart rhythm or detect abnormal electrical patterns. All results are read by Marque’s Board-Certified Cardiologists and the price is only $99. The cardiac screening includes:
- Echocardiogram (ECHO) - a picture of your heart using an ultrasound
- Electrocardiogram (EKG) - shows the rhythm of your heartbeat
- Pulse Oxygen Analysis
What is Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)?Sudden Cardiac Arrest is often confused with a heart attack. Although a prior heart attack increases one’s risk for SCA, the two are quite different; with distinct risk factors, treatment options and outcomes. SCA is caused by an “electrical problem” in the heart. It occurs when the heart’s lower chambers (ventricles) suddenly develop a rapid, irregular rhythm (ventricular fibrillation) causing the ventricles to quiver rather than contract. The chaotic quivering of the ventricles renders the heart an ineffective pump that can no longer supply the body and brain with oxygen.
