Saint Luke’s Athletic Heart Clinic

Sudden cardiac arrest strikes about 100 male and female athletes each year.

  • Most are between 15 and 25 years old.
  • Seven out of 10 will not have warning signs.
  • A simple heart screening could prevent most of those deaths.

The heart experts at Saint Luke's Athletic Heart Clinic know the difference between a healthy athletic heart and one at risk sudden cardiac arrest.

The next Athletic Heart Clinic will take place on Saturday, October 10, at Saint  Luke's Cardiovascular Consultants-Barry Road at 5844 N.W. Barry Road, Suite 230. To register, please call 816-932-5784.
