  • The ATS HeartCheck includes blood pressure check, an electrocardiogram (ECG) and echocardiogram (heart ultrasound).
  • Pediatric specialists conduct the tests which take about 30 minutes.
  • Parents will receive a comprehensive report like the ones hospitals provide.

There are a limited number of appointments available for children age 8 to 25. Pre-registration is required.
