Cardiac Screening

Cardiac Screening Program 

Overlake is partnered with the UW Medicine Center for Sports Cardiology and Dr. Jon Drezner to complete baseline Electrocardiogram (ECG) cardiac testing for Overlake students, offering optional screenings several times per year (typically prior to each sports season).

An ECG is a simple test that observes heart rhythm and can screen for potentially fatal abnormalities, which could lead to Sudden Cardiac Arrest. The $30 screening cost is billed to student accounts. Financial aid is available based on need.  Please watch the school calendar for pre-season screening dates.

Though athletes have a greater risk of SCA, any student 12 or older may get screened. Screenings are optional. Complete this heart health survey to register your student. For more Cardiac Screening Program information click here.
