Why We Need Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Protocol
Studies show Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the #1 killer of student athletes, and the leading cause of death on school campuses. And, SCA is 60% more likely to occur during exercise or physical activity. That’s why it’s critical to educate student athletes, parents, educators and coaches about the symptoms and risk factors of SCA as well as what to do once SCA strikes.
