Isler undergoing tests to determine cause of collapse

By CNJ Staff

Clovis High senior Jaden Isler is in Dallas as doctors continue to search for clues regarding his collapse Thursday at a softball game in Canyon, Texas.

J.D. Isler, Jaden’s father and coach at CHS, said staff at Baptist St. Anthony’s Hospital in Amarillo haven’t identified what caused the senior’s heart to stop.

The Islers landed Thursday night in Dallas, where Jaden will undergo further tests at Baylor Hospital.

“They did a bunch of tests in Amarillo (at Baptist St. Anthony’s Hospital),” J.D. Isler said. “Structurally, everything about his heart is good, so they felt they needed to send him (here).”

In layman’s terms, J.D. Isler said, doctors have explained that heart problems are either plumbing or electrical. Tests Jaden has undergone so far — a CAT scan, a heart catheter, an EKG test, a heart MRI and an echocardiogram —
