The desire of Heart for Athletes is to be a part of the growing trend to perform cardiac screenings on athletes prior to their participation in athletic activities. This service will be provided to athletes in the communities of Baldwin and Mobile, AL, resulting in young lives being saved. The conditions that lead to SCA are detectable, and deaths are preventable.
Because every SCA cannot be prevented, Heart for Athletes also wants to help ensure that our communities are prepared when this emergency occurs. Secondary prevention of SCA involves being ready with a plan of action in place for immediate response. The more people who recognize SCA when it happens, and are prepared to react appropriately with proper CPR technique and AED equipment, the safer our young athletes and our communities will be. Seconds count and any delay in bystander CPR and AED access decreases the victim’s chance of survival.
As Heart for Athletes schedules screenings, they will be added to the calendar below. CPR/AED classes available in our local communities will also be added, so check back periodically.
