Exercise and participation in sport is incredibly healthy and ultimately low risk. However, screening tests can provide strong value for athletes as they are pushing their bodies past the normal endurance limits. Irrespective of the activity, the heart is under tremendous strain. If this is coupled with some pre-existing factors, the already increased likelihood of damage is further amplified.
The SportsCardiologyBC clinic assists athletes in staying active and ensuring continued safety while participating in sport and exercise. The SportsCardiologyBC team has evaluated thousands of recreational, collegiate, provincial, national and professional level athletes across British Columbia, including those with symptoms of possible cardiac concern.
