ATHLETIC NEWS

 

HEART SCREENING AVAILABLE

mCORE To Provide Cardiac Screening Opportunity for Covington Catholic High School

PREVENTATIVE HEART SCREENINGS
I would like to share information on an excellent opportunity that's been made available to our athletes at Covington Catholic High School.  We are 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 Arrest (SCA). mCORE partners with high schools and athletic organizations to give convenient and dependable heart screenings to students.                                                                                                                                                              

SCA is the #1 Killer of Student Athletes Each Year, many of which could have been prevented with a simple examination like this. 

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. 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 mCORE Medical Director and our pediatric cardiology team. (Please contact mCORE should financial hardship preclude you from taking part) 

Learn more about mCORE and Preventative Heart Screenings at www.mcoreathletes.com   
Covington Catholic High School Heart Screening
mCORE will be in the Multipurpose Room
Time: 10am – 6pm 
When: Wednesday, May 29, 2019
