SCA is the #1 killer of student athletes each year

Loveland, Ohio – Recently, an excellent opportunity was made available to athletes at Loveland High School. Loveland has partnered with mCORE™ — Mobile Cardiac Overview and Risk Evaluation — to screen 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. SCA is the result of unsuspecting cardiological disease or abnormalities which cause the heart to stop without warning or symptoms. Several student-athletes each year around the country are lost to this devastating tragedy, many of which could have been prevented with a simple examination like this.
