Honor Your Heroes. Nominate Them for the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation's People Saving People Award

About 1,000 people suffer sudden cardiac arrest each day in the U.S. Survival depends in large part on immediate bystander intervention with CPR and defibrillation. Survivors are invited to recognize their "heroes" and "angels" by nominating them for the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation's People Saving People award. Nominations are due July 13.

Study Suggests Echocardiography is Fiscally Responsible Way to Screen Student Athletes for Risk of Sudden Death

A new study suggests that echocardiography be included as part of screenings to help identify student athletes with heart problems that could lead to sudden death. 

The Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center study, presented July 1 at the annual meeting of the American Society of Echocardiography, suggests adding a modified echo to the current practice of taking an EKG, getting a family history and having a physical exam. 

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest.
