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