EKG at Mater Lakes

Mater Lakes Academy will be having Miami Children’s Hospital on school grounds on September 21st during school hours.

Mater Lakes Academy will be having Miami Children’s Hospital on school grounds on September 21st during school hours. Miami Children’s Hospital EKG (Electrocardiogram) Initiative are offering an EKG test for each of MLA’s athletes for free. It is important for athletes to undergo an EKG. EKGs are simple, safe, and painless. With this test, the following will be checked: heart rhythm, blood flow to your heart, or anything abnormal with the heart that would need further testing. This is a huge benefit to your child’s health.
Therefore, MLA is requiring that each athlete complete their physical exam and an EKG. Although we are offering the EKG to be completed at the school, the student can still get their EKG done with their physician. Just keep in mind that it is required at MLA in order to participate in any sports or sport related activities such as dance and cheerleading. Please note that girls must wear a sports bra under their school uniform that day of the exam.
Attached to this letter is a packet that needs to be filled out and turned in by September 14th to Mr. Franco or Mrs. Morazan in the Athletics Office. Patient information, assessment form, and consent/release of liability forms all need to be filled out in order for Miami Children’s Hospital to perform the EKG on any student. All documents need to be signed. Do not miss out on this opportunity!
