Why Preventative Heart Screenings for Youth Ages 12-22?
Normandy High School Parents and Community,
Each year over 400,000 people are affected by sudden cardiac arrest. Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is not a heart attack but an electrical malfunction of the heart that causes it to stop suddenly. Sudden cardiac arrest is often called the silent killer as you or your child could have an abnormality that goes undetected and without any recognizable symptoms until it is too late.
The mission of the MCORE Foundation is providing communities with education about sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), symptoms and family history in hopes to prevent these tragedies from happening in our communities. Our education program works in conjunction with a high level mobile cardiac unit that provides preventative baseline heart screenings for children ages 12-22.
Our mobile screening unit partners with schools, hospitals and foundations to provide convenient and dependable heart screenings that otherwise would not be available.
Our mobile cardiac unit will be at Normandy High School on Monday, April 6, 2020.
All MCORE Foundation screenings include:
• An ECG and limited Echo test performed by registered cardiac sonographers
• Results read by our team of pediatric and general cardiologists
• Images stored within your secured account for future access or to send to your medical provider.
Each test is approximately 10-12 minutes and you may use your healthcare spending account or flex care spending account for payment. *Should you require financial assistance please contact us.
