It was a great day of service & community as Play For Patrick visited the home of the Bears this last Saturday!
We screened 153 kids and trained 138 kids/parents how to perform hands only CPR and use an AED.  Our findings (22% of those screened) are as follows:

Significant finds: 4

  • Dilated cardiomyopathy: 1
  • Bicuspid aortic valve: 2
  • Wolf-Parkinson-White (WPW) syndrome: 1

Additional finds: 30

  • Hypertension: 19 
  • ECG abnormality/variants: 8 
  • Minor valvular disorders: 3 
    • Mild-mod pulmonic insufficiency: 1
    • Trace aortic insufficiency: 1
    • Mitral valve prolapse: 1

We thank WBL Fire, Chris Voss, the Triad group, WBL HS, Dan Roeser, National Honor Society students, Student council volunteers and ISD 624.  The WBL Lions for keeping our volunteers nourished and hydrated throughout the day.  Roy Schroeder & Tammy Hartman of Clear Channel Outdoor for advertising our event.  Jason Anderson & his team at Philips for loaning us three echo units.  Last but not least a very special thanks to @umnmedschool Drs. Robert Wilson & Dr. Forum Kamdar, @MinneapolisHeart Institute Dr. Jay Traverse, @Regionshospital Dr. Dennis Zue, and ALL of our wonderful volunteers who make this happen and to those who donated money to help fund future events. 
We are honored and humbled for your continued support!
