Cardiac Risk in the Young (CRY)

Situation

Reducing the incidence of young sudden cardiac death

Solution

Screen young people for any cardiac condition they may have with an ECG. If there are any abnormalities with their ECG, they will then have their hearts checked with an Echocardiograph machine. Echocardiograph machines look at the structure of the heart and with information provided on screen, measurements are taken which give a guide to heart muscle thickness and the size of the chambers of the heart.
