Until it’s possible to predict tragedy, there is only prevention.
mCORE™ brings you and your athletes the best chance to detect cardiac risk before it’s too late.
What is SCD?
Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) is the result of unsuspecting cardiovascular disease causing the heart to stop without warning or symptoms. Though many causes have been found, most cases result from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM), the thickening of a heart muscle that obstructs blood outflow.
A proactive approach
Your school has multiple automated external defribrillators (AEDs), but most cardiac fatalities occur before a defribrillator can be administered. Young lives are too valuable to chance with reactive measures like AEDs alone.
Why the focus on teen athletes?
Sudden Cardiac Arrest in teenage athletes assumes a high public profile because of the youth and presumed fitness level of the victims – making the preventable death of a child, often witnessed first-hand by loved ones and community members, such a devastating event with far-reaching repercussions.
