Mobile Cardiac Overview and Risk Evaluation Screenings Available May 10th

Posted on: April 20, 2017

Milford High School is partnering with mCORE™ — Mobile Cardiac Overview and Risk Evaluation — to screen our athletes for the cardiac conditions and abnormalities which may put them at risk of Sudden Cardiac Death (SCA).                              

 

SCA Is The #1 One Killer of Young Athletes.

SCA is the result of unsuspecting cardiological disease or abnormalities which cause the heart to stop without warning or symptoms. We hear about several student-athletes each year that are lost to this devastating tragedy, many of which could have been prevented with a simple examination like this.  For more information on mCORE and SCA please see https://vimeo.com/53605191/

 

Screening Date and Time:

Date: Wednesday May 10, 2017

Time: 12:00 pm- 8:00 pm

Location: FO6 Girls Dressing Room

 

The time requirement is approximately 10-12 minutes per athlete. Each athlete will be given an EKG and Echo screening and these tests typically cost more than $2000 in a clinical setting. The cost to you is $75. (The screening age range is 14-22 years). You may use your Healthcare Spending Account or Flex Care Spending Account. All screenings are performed by a Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer and results are read by the mCORE Medical Director Dr. Kenneth Berkovitz, MD. Board Certified in Cardiovasucular Disease, Interventional Cardiology and Internal Medicine.  (Please contact mCORE should financial hardship preclude you from taking part)
