Will Student Athlete Sports Physicals Now Require Electrocardiogram (ECG) to Check for Heart Problems?


Any WeLoveTrump readers have to take an ECG screening to play sports?

How about your children?

As someone who played sports their entire childhood, my sports physicals never required an ECG.

For anyone unsure of what an ECG entails, here’s a snippet from Mayo Clinic:

An electrocardiogram records the electrical signals in your heart. It’s a common and painless test used to quickly detect heart problems and monitor your heart’s health.

A Twitter user posted this picture that caught my attention:

The sign for student athletes allegedly posted at Jackson River Pediatrics in Covington, Virginia states “COVID vaccination affects your risk” of sudden cardiac death on the playing field.

With the number of cardiac-related events in athletes, every individual who took a COVID-19 injection should undergo this screening.

At Least 69 Athletes Collapsed in One Month From Sudden Heart Problems; Many Passed Away

Sadly, that’s the reality our society faces for the individuals who took this experimental injection.

While attempting to confirm the alleged signage at Jackson River Pediatrics, someone sent me a link to Florida’s Orange County School District.

The link for the Athletics page directed me to Sports Physicals:

NEW for the 2021-22 school year, electrocardiogram (ECG) screenings are REQUIRED for high school students wishing to participate in athletic programs. ECG screenings help identify athletes who are at risk for sudden cardiac arrest which is the leading cause of death in athletics.

ECGs will be required of all high school student-athletes prior to the start of their 2021-2022 FHSAA season. Through local medical providers and organizations, ECGs will be offered on high school campuses.

Please see the listings on the right of this page for more information.
