Athlete Pre-Participation Screening

In rare instances, exercise can be related to sudden abnormal heart rhythms, death in athletes with undiagnosed serious heart or other health problems. It is also helpful to have a general evaluation of your health status before starting new exercise programs. It is therefore important to identify any underlying problems through a pre-participation screening.

Athlete Pre-participation Screening FAQs

  1. Who is this screening for?
  2. This screening is for anyone who participates or intends to participate in competitive or recreational sports, and would like a more thorough battery of tests to identify potential exercise risks so that appropriate measures can be promptly taken. Although relatively thorough, the screening packages will not be able to completely rule out all underlying risks.

  3. Why is this screening necessary?
  4. In rare instances, undiagnosed underlying heart conditions may trigger sudden cardiac death. Pre-participation screening seeks to uncover the majority, but not all of such conditions.

  5. How to do it?
  6. You may make an appointment by calling the CGH Appointment Centre at 6850 3333. State that the appointment is for the Athlete Pre-participation Screening, either the Classic or Deluxe. You will go through a consultation with the doctor to review and determine your health status and fitness levels. Please bring along your identity card on your appointment date.
