San Antonio, TX, October 27, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation determined that 424,000 people experience sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), each year. According to the SCAF, total amount of deaths pertaining to SCA are synonymous to the number of deaths from Alzheimer’s disease, breast cancer, cervical cancer, colorectal cancer, diabetes, firearm assault, HIV, house fires, motor vehicle accidents, prostate cancer, and suicides combined.
Studies estimate that one competitive athlete dies from SCA causes every three days in the United States and is the leading cause of death within young athletes. Overseas, it is mandatory in countries like Italy for young athletes to have a physical and a thorough heart screen, unlike the United States, where the issue is more prominent.
Local Cardiologist, Dr. Ryan Bourne, of EverScreen, stresses the imperative nature of public knowledge and being "proactive rather than reactive" when it comes to the health of our young athletes.
