Mercy Health Student Heart Screenings
Aug 17, 2016
Mercy Health Muskegon is offering FREE student heart screening on August 17th. Register today!
Mercy Health Student Heart Screenings are FREE and open to any High School student.
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 July 27, and August 17th.
