Description

Mercy Health Student Heart Screenings
The heart screenings attempt to identify any pre-existing heart conditions 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 child's risk level. Your child's records will be reviewed by a cardiologist within a few days. Within 10 days, you will receive either a letter indicating your child 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 6:00-8:00 p.m. on March 21, July 18, August 8 and August 22.
