Event Description

Cardiac care and cardiomyopathy remain major areas of interest and concern for all people with Duchenne. While advances in respiratory care have improved respiratory outcomes, dilated cardiomyopathy and heart failure remain the leading cause of death in Duchenne. Cardiomyopathy is a potential risk for mothers and daughters who have been diagnosed as carriers. Carriers should be informed of the need for ongoing screening and care.

Jason has an average heart rate of 120bpm.  Is this to be concerned about?
