- Rush Memorial Hospital is partnering with St. Vincent Medical Group cardiology services by offering youth echo screenings on Friday, September 28, 2018, at RMH Imaging Department.
- Youth 6th though 12th grade are eligible for the screening funded completely through the Rush County Memorial Foundation Jake McKee Heart of Gold Fund.
- The Screening focuses on the four causes of cardiovascular compromise (including sudden cardiac death) in children: hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, Marfan’s aorta, mitral valve prolapse and aortic valve stenosis.
- The screening is non-invasive and does not represent a full 2-D echocardiography or Doppler Examination.
- Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
- Results are mailed to the parents 10-14 working days after the screening.
- If screening results are abnormal, parents should seek follow-up care with their youth’s personal physician.
This is a limited test and does not evaluate for all potential cardiovascular conditions that could exist now or in the future including valvular abnormalities or coronary artery disease. The screening should not replace a complete cardiovascular examination if indicated by symptoms.
