Heart Screenings

PHW TCACC

Screening Process

For each student, we collect height and weight measurements, test blood pressure, perform a 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) and a limited echocardiogram (ECHO).

Electrocardiogram (ECG)

An ECG records the electrical signals of the heart, and is used to detect rhythm disorders.

Echocardiogram (ECHO)

The limited ECHO uses sound waves to capture images of the heart structure. These detailed pictures are helpful for detecting heart abnormalities of heart wall thickness, and congenital heart valve defects.
