NJ Bills Mandate Better Cardiac Screening for Student Athletes

State Sen. Fred Madden (D-Gloucester, Camden) on Thursday introduced three bills implementing the recommendations of the New Jersey Student Athlete Cardiac Screening Task Force, which issued a report last month advocating better cardiac screening of student athletes to prevent sudden death from undiagnosed heart conditions.

The task force did not recommend that all student athletes get an EKG, but advocated gathering a complete, accurate family history to identify student athletes at risk from hereditary cardiac conditions. It also endorsed better training for clinicians so they can identify heart problems during a sports physical.

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) Foundation is to prevent death and disability from sudden cardiac arrest. The vision of the SCA Foundation is to increase awareness about sudden cardiac arrest and influence attitudinal and behavioral changes that will reduce mortality and morbidity from SCA.
