Sports Cardiology BC to Conduct Masters Athlete Heart Health Testing
Friday, August 21, 2015

Sports Cardiology BC is coming to Kelowna and Victoria to conduct non-invasive Masters Athlete Heart Health Testing on athletes aged 35 years and over.  The purpose of the testing is to create a database of BC Masters Athletes in order to gain a better understanding for appropriate and safe participation in sport.

The testing is open to male and female athletes over the age of 35 years and are involved in informal recreational sports at a moderate to vigorous intensity level at least three (3) times per week or who participate in competitive sports that require training and regular competition against others and places a high premium on athletic performance.

Sports Cardiology BC will be on location the following dates:


September 12, 2015

9:00am – 5:00pm

Pinnacle Physio in the CN Centre


September 13, 2015

Through this research, Sports Cardiology BC aims to evaluate the cardiovascular risk and the best screening method for detecting cardiovascular disease in BC masters athletes in order to prevent adverse cardiac events and sudden cardiac death in sport.  They will also determine the prevalence of atrial fibrillation in the masters athlete and its association with the intensity of sport and volume of lifetime physical activity.
