Clients who are invited to attend
screenings will be required to sign a consent form and complete a health
questionnaire, prior to the date of the screening. It must be emphasised
that if a diagnosis of a cardiac condition is confirmed it may have
implications with regard to life insurance and mortgage applications for
the individual, hence the need for a signed consent form.
Any person who is considered to have an
abnormal ECG will be given an ECHO on the day; and some people may also
be invited to have a full cardiac
evaluation at a later date.
After the date of the
screening, every person's ECG/ECHO, completed health questionnaire and consent
be forwarded to CRY's expert doctors for research purposes - increasing our understanding of the conditions and
ultimately helping to reduce the number of young sudden cardiac deaths.
