Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome

Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome (SADS)

Sudden Arrhythmia Death Syndrome (SADS) refers to a variety of cardiac disorders which are often genetic and undiagnosed that can be responsible for sudden death in young, apparently healthy people. Recognition of the warning signs (fainting) and early medical intervention (Call 911- cardiac assessment) are the keys to preventing sudden cardiac death in children and young adults. No participation in physical activity until a medical assessment is completed and information from the parent is provided to the school administrator.
