Letter: Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness Month

On May 23, 2012, our seemingly healthy 16-year-old son, Adam, died of a sudden cardiac arrest at home taking a nap. He had no warning; the first symptom was death. The only thing that might have saved his life was an automated external defibrillator, a medical device designed to deliver an electric shock to the heart if needed. Sadly, none was available.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest in youth is not a rare occurrence. It is happening to thousands of youth each year — on the football field, on the soccer field, in the classroom and in their sleep. It is critical that our community recognizes the importance of having AEDs available everywhere that children congregate; that we encourage CPR/AED training and have an emergency action plan in place should someone collapse because of SCA.

Sudden Cardiac Arrest in the Young

What is sudden cardiac arrest?

Sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a condition in which the heartbeat stops abruptly and unexpectedly. This usually is caused by ventricular fibrillation (VF), an abnormality in the heart’s electrical system. When this happens, blood stops flowing to the brain the heart and the rest of the body, and the person collapses. A quick combination of CPR and defibrillation can restore life.

Staten Island Teenager Who Collapsed on Football Field Died of Heart Condition, Not Heat: Medical Examiner

A Staten Island teenager who died after collapsing during varsity football practice last month died of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a condition in which the heart muscle becomes abnormally thick, making it difficult for the heart to pump blood, the medical examiner said Tuesday.

Miles Kirkland, a 16-year-old junior at Curtis High School, collapsed during practice Sept.1 and was pronounced dead at a hospital. A teammate said he had been going to get water when he fell.
