Each year, thousands of children, teens and young adults suffer Sudden Cardiac Arrest from undetected heart conditions. Often, the outcome is death. Many of these deaths can be prevented through education, awareness and:
Primary Prevention Cardiac screenings with an electrocardiogram (ECG) for the early detection of risk factors and underlying heart conditions that may lead to Sudden Cardiac Arrest Secondary Prevention
A written and well-practiced Cardiac Emergency Response Plan wherever youth congregate
Recognition of Sudden Cardiac Arrest when it occurs
Widespread training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use of automated external defibrillators (AEDs)
Access to operational AEDs at all times
