Wimbledon Athletics is proud to partner with Huston-Tillotson University to provide cardiovascular testing for student athletes on school grounds Tues, February 13th through Thurs, February 15th. Ensuring student athletes and their families are made aware of any underlying cardiovascular issues as early as possible is very important to us.

Tests include EKGs and echocardiograms to detect heart abnormalities that can cause sudden cardiac arrest and non-invasive vascular ultrasound to identify vascular conditions common to athletes (such as blood clots). Qualified sonographers (techs) perform the tests professionally and maintain the privacy of each student. Board certified reading cardiologists, pediatric cardiologists, and radiologists interpret test results and report detailed findings. If anything significant is identified, the school’s designated point of contact will be notified immediately.

Wimbledon Health Partners will bill your health insurance for the services provided, accepting what your carrier deems usual and customary (we do not balance bill!). As required by law, WHP will bill for the deductible or co-insurance, if applicable. If a balance is due, WHP can offer a payment plan or can eliminate the balance entirely for those in genuine hardship situations. There are a number of circumstances that qualify as a financial hardship, including being a college student with significant financial restrictions.

Please be aware that if you have a Health Savings Account (HSA), Flexible Spending Account (FSA), or Health Reimbursement Account (HRA), funds may be deducted automatically if a balance is due, even if a waiver has been submitted. Please check with your insurance carrier, as each policy is different.

Review our Frequently Asked Questions for more information regarding the testing.

Prepare for testing by viewing the How To Prep For Testing Flyer.

WHAT IS SUDDEN CARDIAC ARREST?

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is caused by an abnormality in the heart’s electrical system or structure that abruptly stops the heartbeat—and it’s fatal in 95% of the cases. Sudden cardiac arrest is the leading cause of death on school campuses. The American Heart Association reports that every 3 days in the U.S., a young athlete dies from sudden cardiac arrest. Studies indicate the risk for sudden cardiac arrest is 3 times higher in competitive athletes than in non-athletes. The threat is real.

For 80% of kids, sudden cardiac arrest will be the first sign something is wrong. The majority simply do not experience any symptoms indicating a heart problem. Others believe shortness of breath or dizziness is caused by exertion—not a heart condition—and will work harder to get stronger, putting their lives at risk. Published studies estimate that pre-participation screening (history and physical exam) only catches 3-15% of cardiac problems!
