Athlete/Parent/Guardian Sudden Cardiac Arrest Symptoms and Warning
Signs Information Sheet and Acknowledgement of Receipt and Review
What is sudden cardiac arrest?
Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is when the heart stops beating, suddenly
and unexpectedly. When this happens, blood stops flowing to the brain
and other vital organs. SCA doesn’t just happen to adults; it takes
the lives of students, too. However, the causes of sudden cardiac
arrest in students and adults can be different. A youth athlete’s
SCA will likely result from an inherited condition, while an adult’s
SCA may be caused by either inherited or lifestyle issues. SCA is
NOT a heart attack. A heart attack may cause SCA, but they are not
the same. A heart attack is caused by a blockage that stops the flow
of blood to the heart. SCA is a malfunction in the heart’s
electrical system, causing the heart to suddenly stop beating.
How common is sudden cardiac arrest in the United States?
SCA is the #1 cause of death for adults in this country. There are
about 300,000 cardiac arrests outside hospitals each year. About
2,000 patients under 25 die of SCA each year. It is the #1 cause of
death for student athletes.
Are there warning signs?
Although SCA happens unexpectedly, some people may have signs or
symptoms, such as:
These symptoms can be unclear in athletes, since people often confuse
these warning signs with physical exhaustion. SCA can be prevented if
the underlying causes can be diagnosed and treated.
What are the risks of practicing or playing after experiencing
these symptoms? There are risks associated with continuing to
practice or play after experiencing these symptoms. When the heart
stops, so does the blood that flows to the brain and other vital
organs. Death or permanent brain damage can occur in just a few
minutes. Most people who experience SCA die from it.

The act is intended to keep youth athletes safe while practicing or
playing. The requirements of the act are:
