Why undergo a Cardiac Screening?

Up to 100 young people die each year in Ireland from Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS)

1 in 300 people may have a cardiac abnormality

The national register recently reported that the incidents of SADS are higher in Ireland than many other European countries.

 In Italy cardiac screening is mandatory for anyone aged 12 to 35 years involved in competitive sport for the past 25 years. They have reduced the incidents of SADS by 89%.

The GAA’s Medical Scientific and Welfare Committee and the International Rugby Board recommend cardiac screening for all players over the age of 14 years

The European Society of Cardiology & the International Olympic Committee recommends cardiac screening.

AMS’s service is based on the recommendations of the above named organisations.
