What is Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)?

  • SCA is the condition in which the electrical system to the heart malfunctions, resulting in a disruption of the heart's normal rhythm and the loss of its ability to deliver blood to the body. If untreated, this abrupt disruption results in sudden death.


Who is at risk for SCA?

  • SCA can strike persons of any age, gender or race, including those that seem in good health and at peak physical fitness
  • Most youth with undetected heart conditions typically appear very healthy
  • Many youth never exhibit any signs or symptoms until SCA occurs
  • SCA is the leading cause of death in young athletes


What is an electrocardiogram (ECG)?

  • An ECG is a simple, painless, non-invasive test that measures the electrical activity of the heart.


Know the Warning Signs and Symptoms of a Heart Condition:

  • fainting (syncope) or seizure during or after physical activity or from emotional excitement, emotional distress or startle
  • chest pain or discomfort/racing heartbeat
  • unusual shortness of breath
  • unusual fatigue/tiredness
  • dizziness/lightheadedness during or after physical activity
  • family history of heart disease
  • family history of unexpected sudden death during physical activity or during a seizure, or any other unexplained sudden death of an otherwise healthy family member under age 50

Consult a physician promptly if you or someone you know has one or more of these signs and/or symptoms
