SUDDEN CARDIAC ARREST (SCA) IN YOUTH
The Dominic Murray Sudden Cardiac Arrest Prevention Act is a new law as of July 1, 2022.
This law requires schools, students, and parents/guardians have information on sudden cardiac arrest risks, signs, and symptoms. Please note that sudden cardiac arrest in children and youth is rare. The incidence of sudden cardiac death (SCD) on the playing field is 0.61 in
100,000. 1 Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is an emergency that happens when the heart suddenly stops
working. SCA can cause death if not treated immediately, and even with treatment death may occur. Immediate treatment is cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and use of an automatic external defibrillator (AED). All public schools must have a staff member trained in the use of CPR and AED in school and at all school athletic events.
Preventing SCA before it happens is the best way to save a life 1 . Both your family health history and your child’s personal history must be told to healthcare providers to help them
know if your child is at risk for sudden cardiac arrest. Ask your child if they are having any of the symptoms listed below and tell a healthcare provider. Know your family history and tell a
healthcare provider of any risk factors listed below.
