Cardiologists provided heart screenings for 2010 Paralympians (23/10/2010)

The 2010 Asian Games and Asian Para Games were held in Guangzhou in November. A press conference was held on 23 October by the Hong Kong Paralympic Committee & Sports Association for the Physically Disabled. Cardiologists Dr. Albert Leung, Dr. Gary Mak and Dr. Cyrus Chow were all present to provide on-site heart screenings for the athletes of the HKSAR team before they set off for the games. The doctors also offered their expert advice from the screening results.  

 

Sudden cardiac death hits the news every so often. The latest research revealed that even in young athletes, an estimated 1 out of every 200,000 died of sudden cardiac death1. Cases involving those below the age of 35 are mostly related to congenital heart problems, while other cases of patients over 35 years old are largely linked to coronary heart disease.  

 

While sudden cardiac death in young athletes is uncommon, research have shown that the risks of sudden cardiac death in athletes could be lowered by conducting heart screening before the games. This includes the use of ECG, treadmill exercise ECG and cardiac ultrasound which help detect two-thirds of congenital heart problems in athletes. Cardiologist Dr. Gary Mak, also a council member of the Hong Kong Association of Sports Medicine and Sports Science, reiterated the importance of heart screenings at a talk on sudden cardiac death at the SMART Convention 2010.

 

Pro-Cardio offers health screenings tailored for athletes. To learn more about the programs, please visit: Health Screening Programs
