Mercy Health Student Heart Screenings - August 2019

Event description


Mercy Health Student Heart Screenings

The heart screenings might identify a pre-existing heart condition that could potentially increase a student's risk of complications during vigorous physical activity and/or athletic competition. Student Heart Screenings are a simple five-step process to determine each student's risk level. Your student's records will be reviewed by a cardiologist within a few days. Within 10 days, you will receive either a letter indicating if your student is at low risk for heart conditions or a request for a follow up visit with a physician.

The FREE heart screening is completed in approximately 15 minutes and will consist of the following:
Station 1: Check in
Station 2: Healthy Heart Check History Questionnaire review and blood pressure check
Station 3: 12-lead EKG
Station 4: Physician review and exam
Station 5: Echocardiogram, if indicated
Heart screenings will be held at the Mercy Health Hackley Campus Youngberg Auditorium from 6:00-8:30 p.m. on March 13, July 10, August 7 and August 28.
