Providing Preventative Heart Screenings To Reduce Sudden Cardiac Death In Youth
SafeBeat’s mission is to help prevent Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in adolescents through preventative heart screenings, heart health education, and emergency action training. We work to establish local/regional preventative heart-screenings for area youth to help prevent the #1 cause of death in student athletes and students on campus. Because SCA often occurs without symptoms, we have established our preventive heart-screening program that helps with early detection and proactive treatment of any abnormalities that are found. We also provide resources for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training, automated external defibrillator (AED) placement, and implementation of a Cardiac Emergency Response Plan (CERP). Founded by Jayne Vining, in memory and honor of her son Marc, who died of a congenital heart defect, our vision is that no family suffers the loss of a child because of SCA.
