My 5-Year-Old Tells Other Kids About Getting an EKG

My family has a genetic heart condition called Brugada Syndrome which is often diagnosed from an abnormal EKG, and I have to be monitored yearly. Because of the family history, my doctor recommended that my daughter get a baseline EKG in the chance that she has symptoms in the future.

On her appointment day, I thought that some kids in her position might be scared or nervous, but she did really well! In this video she tells other kids what it's like to get an EKG, in case they are nervous and need encouragement!
