Young Athletes and Heart Health Infographic Now Available

Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the number one medical cause of death in young athletes. SCA often happens in young people who don’t know they have a heart problem. To raise awareness about this issue and help patients learn more about this condition, the ACC’s CardioSmart team has created an infographic as well as a new sports and SCA condition center. The infographic offers information about warning signs and how to prevent SCA and can be downloaded for free. For more information and resources on this topic, visit CardioSmart.org/Sports.
