Overview:

Sudden Cardiac Arrest is the number one cause of death in the United States for student-athletes during exercise. Caused by a structural or electrical problem associated with the heart, Sudden Cardiac Arrest happens when the heart unexpectedly stops beating and pumping blood. This is why the National Federation of State High School Associations, in partnership with Simon’s Heart, has developed the course Sudden Cardiac Arrest. This course could be taken by students or it could be used as informational material for teachers as they develop their lesson/unit plans.
