Somerset Medical Center is sponsoring and hosting free heart screenings for high school athletes on Saturday, February 23, 2013, from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the medical center’s Somerset Family Practice office, located at 110 Rehill Ave., Somerville, NJ.

The center’s cardiologists, cardiac nurses, and technicians will be conducting the screenings, and will look for major abnormalities known to cause sudden cardiac death, which affects an average of 1 in 100,000 student athletes nationwide each year. The screening evaluations will include a cardiovascular history and physical exam, blood pressure screening, body metrics, an electrocardiogram, and an echocardiogram, if indicated. The results will be given to each student and the student’s personal physician, who will work with the cardiologists on any necessary follow-up.

All high school student athletes, ages 14 to 18, are welcome to receive a free heart screening, with an accompanying parent or guardian. Appointments are required, and can be made by calling (908) 685-2414.
