Thread DetailsLast Edited by TattyBear July 27, 2016 at 03:44 PM
About 1,500 babies die of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) in the U.S. every year. One of the known causes of SIDS is a heart condition called the long QT syndrome (LQTS). LQTS is a genetic disorder that can cause sudden death, due to irregular heart beats (or arrhythmias). A simple electrocardiogram (ECG) test may detect LQTS, to allow proper medical treatment to prevent arrhythmias.
We are currently conducting a newborn heart study with infants under 5 weeks old. The study itself involves a simple and harmless ECG that is designed for parents to do on their babies at home! The entire study takes around 30 to 60 minutes. The ECG is of the same quality as those recorded in hospitals. Two board certified pediatric cardiologists will read the ECG immediately, and results will be sent to you.
Participation in the study will be of no cost to you or your insurance. You will be compensated with a $20 gift card.
All pregnant mothers and mothers of healthy newborns 4 weeks old and younger are eligible. For more information or any questions feel free to contact us!
