An electrocardiogram (also known as EKG or ECG) is a non-invasive test that measures the electrical activity of the heart and can detect some, but not all, heart abnormalities leading to sudden cardiac death. An EKG can sometimes indicate the presence of abnormalities which later testing determines are within normal limits. An echocardiogram is a non-invasive test that uses sound waves to produce images of the heart.

There is no known risk associated with receiving an EKG. There is a possibility of minor skin irritation and redness where the electrodes were placed. There is no known risk associated with receiving an echocardiogram.

For asymptomatic young adults, we recommend repeating the EKG test every two years. The heart changes over time, and some conditions are progressive and may not show on an earlier EKG, and there are conditions which do not manifest on every EKG, so a repeated test better allows capturing these changes and conditions.

Thanks to underwriting provided through Libertyville High School, the Screens for Teens cardiac screening program will be offered at no cost to the student.

RESULTS ARE SENT OUT AN VIA EMAIL 2-3 WEEKS AFTER THE SCREENING.


Register early:  Students registered by March 12, 2017 will automatically receive a FREE copy of their EKG by email from the Max Schewitz Foundation. If you would like a copy after the early registration, there will be a $10 service fee per copy.
