Preventative Heart Screenings

This entry was posted in Prairie View Elementary on by .

New Prairie definitely knows the importance of heart screenings for our youth (see the chart below).  Please keep promoting this to our community.  Also- heart screenings are not a one-and-done deal.  As youth grow and develop, problems can arise, but you do not know if you do not look.  Some recommend a screening every 2-3 years, some recommend every year. Go to to register your student.

Appointments are available for April and May.  This changes frequently as appointments are canceled and other spots are filled.

Ages 10-25 are eligible; screenings involve an EKG and an Echo; $20.

The screening done at NP in 2016 involved only an EKG.  Now the screenings include an EKG AND Echo.  The Echo is a screening tool that can detect the conditions that both Jake and Mark had.

The risk is real.  The solution is simple. Get screened!
Please share with family, friends, coaches, co-workers, etc.
