SUDDEN CARDIAC ARREST IS THE LEADING
CAUSE OF DEATH IN YOUNG ATHLETES

Every year in the United States, more than 355,000 people die when their heart suddenly and unexpectedly stops beating. Known as Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA), this syndrome happens without warning and instantly stops the flow of blood to the brain and vital organs. It proves fatal in 92% of cases if not properly treated within minutes.

SCA is the #1 killer of student athletes. No coach or parent wants their athletes to experience SCA. Encourage your players to attend the next screening.
