Screening programme detects Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) in young athletes

 

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is one of the leading causes of death in young athletes in America. To prevent such fatalities, the American Heart Association (AHA) has designed a 14-point screening programme that learning institutions can use to identify young athletes at risk of SCA. 

Additionally, many high schools today require their athletic departments to have AEDs, or automated external defibrillators, at hand for sudden attacks, in addition to following the AHA’s SCA-screening recommendations.
