Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY)

ECG Machine

Cardiac screening is an important area of CRY's work to reduce the incidence of young sudden cardiac death. To hold cardiac screenings, CRY needs a large of number of Electrocardiograph machines to screen over 30,000 young people a year for any cardiac conditions they may be carrying.

Situation

Every week in the UK, at least 12 apparently fit and healthy, young people die suddenly and unexpectedly from an undiagnosed heart condition.

Solution

CRY screens young people between the ages of 14-35 for any cardiac conditions they may be carrying. We do this by initially screening young people with an Electrocardiograph machine, and the testing their hearts with an Echocardiograph machine if there are any abnormalities in their ECG. Therefore the ECG plays a key part in CRY's cardiac screening programme.
