In Spain, there are about 25 cases of sudden death a year in young patients who practice sports, and 30,000 a year in the entire population. Therefore, it is important to go to a specialist in Cardiology to check the cardiovascular status, since it can reduce the number of sudden deaths and the terrible impact they entail.
- In children , a clinical evaluation with physical examination and electrocardiogram may suffice, if there are no symptoms and exploration and ECG are normal enough.
- In young adults who perform high level physical activity (extreme endurance races, triathletes, marathoners, cyclists ...) you must perform ECG, Doppler echocardiogram and exercise test at least every 2 years.
- In adults over 35 who are going to start a sports training program, a complete study should also be done, and depending on intensity, repeat every 3 -5 years.
In the 2017-2018 season we have made the medical recognition to the staff of Málaga CF , checking their great physical level before the preseason and with great enthusiasm for this new season. We are proud to participate with our team.
