  PREVENTION OF SUDDEN CARDIAC ARREST IN YOUTH    

 

ABOUT LIVING FOR ZACHARY Living for Zachary’s mission is to raise awareness and prevent sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) in youth. The organization was founded in honor of Zachary Schrah, who was only 16 years old when he collapsed without warning during a high school football practice in Plano on April 2, 2009. After Zachary’s death, his mother Karen founded Living for Zachary, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, in June of 2009. Since its inception, Living for Zachary has impacted thousands of families and children across Texas through youth heart screenings, AED donations, CPR/AED certification classes, scholarships, and awareness events.

 

LIVING FOR ZACHARY HEART SCREENINGS: The “Living for Zachary Heart Screening” is a special screening program for youth ages 12-22 that can help detect heart abnormalities that may lead to Sudden Cardiac Arrest. Living for Zachary partners with Frontera Strategies to provide these screenings.

 

Living for Zachary is coordinating student heart screenings performed by Frontera. The non-invasive screening package includes:

  • Electrocardiogram (EKG)
  • Limited 2-D Echocardiogram
  • Blood pressure screening
  • SCA Risk History Questionnaire (AHA recommended)
  • Screening review and interpretation by a board-certified cardiologist

  Contact your pediatrician immediately if your child is currently experiencing Sudden Cardiac Arrest symptoms.

A Living for Zachary Heart Screening is not a substitute for a thorough exam and consultation with a physician and does not provide clearance for participation in athletics. While the screening seeks to detect conditions that may lead to SCA, it does not guarantee all risks of SCA will be detected.
