Irish vision to stem SCD (sudden cardiac death) in young - a global issue

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Ireland has announced groundbreaking plans to screen all people engaged in sport for sudden cardiac death (SCD), as part of a strategy to stem the relatively high incidence of the condition in the young. SCD (or sudden arrest) is not a heart attack (infarction), but involves the abrupt loss of heart function, often in cases that presented no symptoms of coronary heart disease (CHD).
