|Healthy Heart Check at Oakland University Saturday, November 14|| |
October 21, 2009
This program for high school students features an in-depth heart screening with a medical history review, blood pressure assessment and an electrocardiogram (EKG) -- all reviewed by a Beaumont doctor. The doctor will listen to the student's heart and may decide to do an echocardiogram, a non-invasive picture of the heart. This screening helps look for the potential risk of sudden cardiac death.
The results of the screening will be mailed to your home within one week of the screening event and can be shared with your child and family physician.
To participate in the Healthy Heart Check Screening Program, you will need to complete a medical questionnaire and consent form, and return them with your child on the day of the screening. If forms are missing or incomplete, we will be unable to screen your child. A parent or guardian does not need to accompany the student to the screening if the medical questionnaire and consent forms are complete.
This is a no-cost screening to benefit families with high school students.
