BAPS to offer 'HeartCheck' to student athletes
Broken Arrow Public Schools Athletic Department is hosting ATS HeartCheck, a comprehensive heart assessment for Broken Arrow student-athletes in middle school and high school Saturday, May 4, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Varsity Training Center, located directly south of BA Memorial Stadium on County Line Road.
Cost for the screening is just $129, a discount of more than $1,300. To schedule an appointment go to ATSHeartCheck.com. If cost is an issue, further discounted pricing is available.
“ATS is providing a tremendous service by providing our student-athletes affordable and convenient testing for undetectable heart conditions,” said Lane Green, Athletic Director of Blue Valley School District in Overland Park, Kan. “Through the heart imaging and other tests, parents can obtain information on their child’s physical condition that can’t be achieved thru the typical pre-participation physical exams.”
Studies have shown that one in 100 youth have some form of heart defect. According to ATS HeartCheck, a student athlete suffers cardiac arrest every three days.
The ATS HeartCheck uses the most effective analytic tools to understand a heart’s condition that includes Blood Pressure, electrocardiogram (EKG), and echocardiogram (heart ultrasound), all delivered by specially trained medical professionals certified in congenital and genetic heart conditions.
