Please discuss whether you agree with the following statement: All children should be screened on a regular basis for heart disease. Be sure to support your responses.
I agree with the statement; All children should be screen for heart disease on regular basis. It is very important to screen children for diseases especially children with high risk like children with obesity, malnutrition, family history of heart diseases, diabetics; congenital heart defect, children with chromosomal abnormalities.
I support this response very storgly why because I strongly believe "prevention is better than cure". Screening programs are helps in identifying high risk children, early detection, early diagnosis and treatment and consequently prevent deaths due to heart diseases and promote long and quality life.
Some of the heart diseases are asymptomatic like long QT syndrome and it causes death in early age. So by this screening we are able to identify these type of diseases. American heart association also recommends screening programmes regularly for all children.
